I have tested the new "offset mode" of Normal editor.
I'm a bit confused by the normal rotations.

What I expect is something like this


Please advice if I got this wrong.

Edit: is it like mixing toward the direction? If so, how many I need to mix to turn the normal 90 degs? Thanks.

Yes you are right. It's like you are attracting the normals to the specified direction. You can't use this tool to precisely control rotation. You should use another method, which I forgot to mention in release notes:

Now you can rotate normals by typing the value in degrees like for usual rotation. Just press Ctrl+Shift+R - X - 90
