When you are using layer rotation and scale tools, you should see numerical boxes at the top of the main workspace, and you can type into them.
Note: you must have both the correct layer and the correct tools selected.

This is done automatically if you don't use point animation or direct bone animation of points (the default setup).
Bone animation where you bind an entire layer to an individual bone is okay.
If you see a red dot beside a vector layer symbol in the Layers window, it should export as a symbol. If you don't see a red dot, something is potentially warping the layer.

Only if you bind entire layers to individual bones in a skeleton. Moho also enables you to have different bones in a skeleton controlling different points on the same layer, as an alternative to point animation.

I suggest the introduction of an overall interface concept which I've seen in other programs: a standard "pro" button which reveals the more sophisticated controls. This way, Moho would appear as easily understandable to a novice user, while still have all the powerful control points on the inside. (In fact, last week we talked about doing a Moho workshop for kids ...)
By removing files from the "C:\Program Files\Moho\scripts\tool" folder and removing their corresponding toolbar entries in the _tool_list.txt file in the same folder, you can have a simplified toolbar. Just make a backup copy of the entire folder first.
