Want to link (smoke particle) object to hand without rotation.

I want to link my particle generator to a hand and not have it rotiate, so i want to link its translation and not rotation.

You should be able to turn off the rotation inherited from what it is linked to? Either that or lock the emitter object along the axis that you don't want it rotating on?
