Hello there, 

in my workflow I keep wishing I could rotate the spot removal tool in copy mode. Sometimes the source I pick is just perfect except that it would have to be rotated a bit to fit perfectly. How about that?

Can we rotate the adjustment brush mask in Adobe Lightroom?

Only move a mask around. You might try if you can "trick" this at least in increments of 90 degrees, by syncing local adjustments between images that are set to different 'camera orientation' rotations.

This won't have the intended effect. If you copy the adjustment between virtual copies with different rotations, the adjustment will stick with the same underlying pixels.  If you rotate the source photo and then export it as a TIFF and reimport the TIFF (thus "baking" the rotation into the actual pixels), then make the adjustment and copy it to the TIFF, the adjustment will be rotated on the TIFF, but it won't appear in the intended location with the same size.

[won't have the intended effect] - Yes, it was an unsatisfactory long shot! Brushed masks, as with spot removal, cannot be free-transformed.
