Allow rotating vertex/face normals individually.
I have a problem that I am trying to model chairs on a theater. I was using the dupliverts to place the chairs around, but they seem to be all in a weird angle. So I would maybe fix that problem by rotating the duplivert mesh normal angle, but it's not possible in Blender. Here is a test file, so you can play with it: https://www.dropbox.com/s/q51hbfy7xsdsetl/dupliverts.blend?dl=0

There's an on-going GSOC project related to editing normals. Unfortunately, I've got no idea if it would actually help in this instance. There's a [discussion thread](https://blenderartists.org/forum/showthread.php?427746-GSoC-2017-Normal-Editing-Tools) for it over on BlenderArtists.org.

Thanks for the link. So if this is not possible currently, then what would be the correct method to add those chairs?

You might try dupliframes on a curve object and then edit the tilt of the curve’s control points to get proper orientation. I'd also encourage you to participate in that thread I linked. See if the developer or anyone else in that thread can test your .blend file in a build from that branch.

Hi, this is easily solvable by just using duplifaces instead of dupliverts. .)
