How many times you type 90 or 180 degrees in the rotation box?
It would be so easy to make use even of the Angle of rotation arrow next to the rotation value box and make it do something instead of just showing an icon.
Just click and it rotates 90 degrees as default for example (if you don't want to put any extra icons).
Will you settle for two clicks ? ?
If so, this is what I once did.
1. Open DOCKER > WINDOWS > TRANSFORMATIONS > ROTATE
2. Enter 90 or -90 in the docker.
3. Open Tools > Customization Commands > ALL
4. Under ALL, find Rotate. Drag it to a spot on a command bar or create your own command bar. You can repeat this for as many angles as you wish.
To use this scheme.
1. Click on the tool bar icon.
2. Click on APPLY in the Rotate docker which pops up
That's the general idea. The details may be a little different in X7 since I did this in many versions ago. It may even be possible to modify this procedure in X7 to get it to work with one click.
Guys - I've just come to this while trying to find out whether X7 does have a single-click "rotate 90 degrees" icon. Or, rather, a matching left & right pair. There are various Rotate options in Customisation but I couldn't rule out that my not finding one that did what I wanted wasn't just down to me.I had to rotate a logo in about 30+ different sets of artwork but found that opening a box and entering 90 for each and every one wasn't very appealing. I'd looked at using the Ctrl rotate constrain feature but found it not practical.However ... I then looked at the Constrain Angle figure in Edit and found that it was at 5 degrees. It's rare that I have to rotate anything by that much so I changed it to 45 degrees. That's enough to see that it's working and to know that one more step is the required 90 degrees.Job done and with no mods or macros.

I'm glad that you explored the options for Constrain Angle; that's how I usually do quick, one-off 90- or 180-degree rotations.
Another option is to use a macro for rotation that doesn't require you to keep typing in the rotation angle:
#6: Macro - "Rotator"
