MOVE INSIDE problem of erratic location

Recommended Posts

The rectangle in the canvas is the parent shape, and the ellipse in the canvas is the child shape. I use MOVE INSIDE to move the ellipse into the rectangle. If I change the size of the rectangle and then move the ellipse in, the position of the ellipse will change.

In fact, changing the artboard size will also cause the position to change. In actual use, the ellipse is sometimes positioned far away from the canvas. The screen recording was created specifically to demonstrate the problem. The actual situation is much worse.

Bug still there, to get away from this bug Temporarily, move object out of the Artboard then make Clipping Mask "things" they call "Move inside / Outside".
