Summary0001642: Moving parts created from sketches is ignored
DescriptionWhen a part is created from a sketch, for example by padding, the Data->Placement values are grayed out. When I try moving the part using the Draft->Move tool, the UI suggests that the part is movable, I can click on start and end points of the move, but when the move is completed, the part moves back to its original position. The correct way to move the part is by moving the sketch.

IMHO the Draft->Move tool should tell the user right away that it can not move the part and that the user should move the sketch instead. After all, the UI "knows" that the part can not be moved since the placement data is grayed out. It would be cool if the Draft->Move tool could transparently move the sketch instead, however I do not know whether this conflicts with any other workflows.

The Draft->Rotate tool also accepts rotation of the part, however does not rotate it as suggested by the user when using the tool. Right-clicking on a part and choosing "Transform" sometimes allows usage of a multi-move-rotate-tool, but that also silently goes back to the original position.
TagsNo tags attached.

According to your description it's related to sketches but the bug is clearly in Draft. I will move the topic to the right place.

@Yorik: There is now a method getEditorMode() to query whether a property in the editor is read-only or even hidden.

pad = App.ActiveDocument.Pad
pad.getEditorMode("Placement") => returns a list

The list can be empty so the property is editable
The list can contain the string "ReadOnly"
The list can contain the string "Hidden"

So, the Move command should check for "ReadOnly" in the list.

Hint: The Move command can also create a simple copy so that it still should start up. In this case the "Copy" check-box should be set on and disabled.
