Summary0011519: Manipulating a Line/Bezier Curve causes change in XY postition
DescriptionThis bug was originally reported by Stu for Scribus Version at 08-Nov-24 under 0007628.

As this issue is still present, I report it now again for the new Scribus 1.4.2.

Original Description:

After 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.

Work around this:

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.
Steps To Reproduce1. Mark an object like a box, a circle, etc.
2. Right click on the mouse
3. Properties
4. Shape
5. Edit
6. Press upper left button "Move Nodes".
7. Click on one of the nodes.
8. Pay attention to X/Y
9. Repeat at step 7, move ahead.
Additional InformationThis bug is absolutely uninteresting as long as you can use Inkscape to edit your objects.

But when you need to edit objects in relation to other objects, this bug is a pain.
TagsNo tags attached.

No need to report it again. 0007628 has not been closed, so it is expected to be still present.
