I'm more interested in Java Edition. Feel free to include Bedrock for prosperity, but please be explicit about which edition you're referring to.
I'm trying to place a piston.
But, in my situation, I'm only able to place it from "behind", since my player won't have access to the area needed for the default orientation to work.
Can we place blocks "backwards", facing the opposite direction that they're normally facing when placed? Maybe through some key combination?
Could I place a piston like this, from the position I'm standing in?
