Summary0010144: Shapes are sometimes cutfed off after grouping
DescriptionUnder some circumstances shapes are displayed bad when grouped.
Possibly reason is bad evaluation of group dimension.
Steps To Reproduce1. create line (width 2mm, length 40mm)
2. create circle (radius 40mm)
3. place center point of circle created i step 2 on basepoint of line created in step 1
4. multiple duplicate line created in step 1 11-times (create 11 copies with rotation 30 deg.)
5. steps 1-4 results in perfectly aligned pattern (see attachment)
6. now group all 12 lines - which breakes aligning at the end of some lines (see attachment)
7. next ungroups all 12 lines - which fix problem
8. next group all 12 lines and circle too - in this case no problem occurs
Additional InformationThe same problem can be seen in Scribus 1.4.0.rc5 and Scribus 1.5.0.svn too.

All you need to reproduce problem is to group lines exactly as shown on picture

One more comment - no, there is no _move_ of nodes!
But there is cut-off of some parts of noeds, so ending
parts of lines are not displayed.

i'm copy pasting your ungrouped set of lines, moving it at another place in the document and grouping it.

the lines look perfect...

What? Really? Please, simply select my set of lines and take screenshot. I can't believe that the selection (and than the group) is accurate.

Is there available some offical build of 1.4 or 1.5 Scribus version for Windows? I can try it there.

ok, now i can reproduce it: you are only grouping the lines!

the circle is not in the group...

and i have a workaround:
- copy paste the circle (so that you have to circles one on top of the other...)
- group the lines with one of both circles...
- alt-click on the circle in the group to select it (or use the outline tool)
- delete the circle in the group
- you can use the other circle to check that everything is correct...

Thanks, it works as you say: All seems good when you grouped lines with circle and - which is important - it seems goog also when circle is from group afterwards deleted!

I guess that this detail is important to solve problem. We can compare broken group and workarounded group and then find solution in Scribus code.
