Where do you want the pivot points? Center of each object or center of all objects?

Well, the centre of all objects i suppose, When i select all the objects in layout and rotate them, they all rotate from thier pivit points, i need them to rotate from 1

If you get what i mean :(

Create a Null object, then select allt he objects and drag them in scene editor under the Null object (so that they are indented, which means they are now children of the Null (parented)). Then rotate or move the null any way you please.

You could do what Exception has just said or:

I would center each object and save it. You can do this via layout snchronised to modeller.

Then you can select you objects in the "scene editor" and hold the ctrl key whilst selecting a bunch of objects.

Then select rotate. all your objects will rotate simultaneously from one object handle.

I hope that helps Lemonish

Cheers
