Summary0002579: Invalid positioning
DescriptionUsing manual placement (edit mode) doesn't play well with setting positional parameters in the placement window.
Steps To ReproduceCreate a new project. Add a cylinder from the Part menu. Now double click the cylinder in the left treeview, so that the Cylinder get surrounded with arrows and circles (i.e. toggle Edit mode). Now use your mouse to move it around, change it's rotation etc.

Now click the Placement property so that the Placement window will appear on the left. Don't change any number - just click "Apply" repeatedly and you'll see that everytime you click it, the cylinder moves a little.

In some scenarios the Cylinder's position will converge to some position nearby, but sometimes it will move away randomly.

This can get even worse if you move/rotate the Cylinder while still being in the Placement window and then click Apply.

Both behaviours are buggy, as I expect it to stand still if I just click "Apply" repeatedly.
TagsNo tags attached.
