I select the origin, then first ref point select the base of the item, then it asks second ref point, so as I move mouse to right to the new base point, surely the base of the item should keep up, it should be at the cursor tip, instead its lagging behind, so when I click the new base point, the item is not fitting as expected. Base is still to come some distance to where I clicked the new base point. I have to repeat the command and drag the mouse beyond the base and visually stop when the items base matches the destination base.
I get this time and time again, no doubt others have also.
What needs doing to rectify the move, should ortho be off or on ?
I use tab to restrain a move to the direction being moved in when tab was hit, use tab though on scaling and the situation above more often than not happens !
In this case I avoided tab, knowing that, yet annoyingly still get this.
