Hello kwatie, welcome to the forum!

About your problem, it is a bit difficult to understand what you are trying to say. Can you maybe give some more details or a screenshot of what you are trying to do?

- are you selecting individual faces and then using the Rotate Faces Tool ? Or are you selecting several different objects and rotating them with the regular rotate tool?

If you are rotating different objects, try selecting each object seperate and going to Build > Join Solids, this will reset the Pivot Point of the objects, so that they rotate around their center.

Good luck!

Try this, select the faces you want, hit 't' which will select all the faces edges. Then use the rotate tool (not the rotate face).

well, try activating grid snap and doing each one seperately. snap should help keep them lined up.
