Summary0003751: additional/clearer basepoint options for lines
DescriptionThe way coordinates are set for lines (in properties) is currently very confusing and misleading. It's not clear whether they are meant to be treated as rectangles, using the standard basepoint settings (which can be changed using the workaround from 0000689), or use special line-only basepoint settings.

Play with the lines in the attached file to see what I mean (click on the rectangle to change the basepoint). The displayed coordinates don't seem to match the view on the canvas.

If lines are meant to be treated as rectangles, then I think additional left-center and right-center basepoint options are needed to give sensible behavior for rotation.
Additional InformationI think this behavior may have changed in
