B3 bug: Erratic behavior on alt-shift-drag


A common usage pattern for me is to alt-drag an item (to duplicate) then hold down the shift key (to keep it vertically or horizontally in line with the original). This works as expected in B2. In B3, the item to be duplicated sometimes starts out offset down and to the right, and can’t be gotten back into line with the original.

FYI: I posted a bug report about this earlier, which they’ve confirmed and will be looking at: Unexpected behaviour when using duplication via ALT+Drag
