Hi Martin,
The "Pivot" function sets the center of rotation for the whole view, for when you rotate everything with the mouse.  It does not rotate the bond.  If you want to rotate the bond, instead use the "Bond rotation" mouse mode, the icon much further right on the same toolbar as shown in your image.

The Right Mouse icons and what they mean are listed here:
