comment What is the way to manipulate orientation 3d object by 2d object
Could you provide some more detail on the problems you have encountered with using touch for rotating the objects? I'm not sure what you mean by the user getting "stuck". Generally, direct manipulation by touch or gesture should be the best way to move a three-dimensional object.

comment Different UX for multi-edit vs. single record edit
Could you provide a quick sketch or an online example to show this? It seems that having two interfaces (individual edit and bulk edit) might be appropriate for two different types of actions, but it's difficult to say without more detail.

comment Does hiding generic navigation elements improve readabilty?
Even if you were to find a paper that studied a similar issue, it's unlikely to apply directly to your design due to differences in content, users, formatting, etc. You may want to consider a small usability evaluation, or at least mock up both alternatives (post them here if you do) so that your team can discuss them. What content is in the left column? Does it contain elements that might distract from the main text? Can the user open and close it manually, or would it just not appear on certain pages?
