I think it's a bug. Someoen recently already mentioned it. All the same, I stand by what I wrote in that thread: In 20 years of AE I've never bothered using the rotation tools due to its overall quirkiness and lack of precision. Scrubbing the property values in the timeline is much more efficient IMO.

When you use the rotation tool on a 2D layer select the tool them move the tool as far away as you can from the Anchor Point. If the layer starts spinning then there is something fouled up with your mouse or surface calibration. If you can't fix it with control surface or mouse settings for your OS, then file a specific bug.

 

As Mylenium said, if you need precision use the Rotation property in the timeline. Click + Drag changes the values by 1, Shift + Click + drag changes the values by 10, Ctrl/Cmnd + Shift + drag changes the values by .1

Experiencing the same issue.  Yesterday was working as expected, this morning AE rotation tool started bugging out.  Asked a friend in another city to check his AE, same thing.  So its definitely a bug with the new update.  I understand its not a popular tool to use, but some people do use it, and its a shame if it suddenly breaks cause it affects one's workflow.  If this is the new way the rotation tool is going to function, it'll be nice to know why.

Hello, you are not alone. I can't remember when it started, but I did update my AE recently. So maybe also since then?
