Is there a way to tell an item to only be parented to
another objects rotational axis while leaving the item
unparented to the position of the parent.

Use Same as Item.


With your item you wish to have multiple controllers for, hit "M" for motion properties, then go to the Controllers and Limits, now Position. Select your position item you wish to control with, then the particular channels. Do the same for rotations, and you're good to go.


EDIT: Oops, also select Same as Item in the drop down lists for the channel controllers.

You can also use a simple expression, follower, relativity etc.
