Default rotation axis skew

Hi,



Look at the attachment. It has an object not rotating about its Z axis. How is it possible to skew the axis so that the object rotates about's it Z axis completely.



BRdgs,

And (with the move tool selected) hit the insert key to move your pivot (AKA point of rotation) to an appropriate location.
