Summary0012045: Flipped Frames don't resize/behave as expected (+ in groups)
DescriptionResizing flipped Frames does not work as expected from Canvas. It's reproducible with all of the Frames which can be flipped horizontally and vertically.
Steps To Reproduce1) Create a new document
2) Insert a Text/Image/Render Frame or a Polygon/Arc/Spiral
3) From "Properties" > "X,Y,Z" flip the item horizontally or vertically (or both)
4) Try to resize the item from Canvas
Additional InformationThis issue brings out other 2 problems which are:
1) If the Item flipped horizontally is a default Arc, resizing its width/height will position the Arc partially out of the Frame limits (Probably this problem affects Polygons and similar items).
Removing and reapplying the flip will place the item as it should.

2) If the item flipped is an Image Frame, moving the image inside of the Frame will show a "blue selection" which does not correspond to the image position.

Behavior when resizing arcs and basic item types has been fixed. Still issues with flipped items embedded inside groups.

I have committed some more improvement related to this issue in r23318, r23320 and r23321. Moving and resizing items inside groups works now better, at least as long as the group itself is not flipped horizontally of vertically. When group is flipped, at this point the selection of embedded items is still broken, not even to mention the moving and resizing of embedded elements.
