Summary0007628: Manipulating a Line/Bezier Curve causes change in XY postition
DescriptionAfter editing the shape of a Line or Bezeir Curve: either by deleting a Node or moving a Control Point, the entire line then has it's X and Y Postiton changed. So in other words: everytime you make a change to a Line via the Nodes tab it shifts the Line slightly to the right.

The change in position is usually only about 1mm or so.
Using Undo doesn't shift the Line back to it's original position.
Steps To ReproduceCreate a Bezeir curve and manipulate but it doesn't occur all the time.
TagsNo tags attached.

I just wanted to report this bug, but now I see its allready reported. My personal workaround for this is:

1. Increase the magnification to a very high level.
2. Change the node (In high mag view the unwanted changes scribus does are tiny small).
3. Change back the size.

Alternatively you can write the coordinates on paper for each point and just write them into X/Y.

Unfortunately you MUST click on the node. Would be good to navigate to them just by TAB. Would also be good to quit the selection of one dragged (and not yet dropped) node by pressing ESC. But we canĀ“t have all these things... ;-)

This Issue applies also to Scribus 1.4.2
