Power Duplicate with Locked Children doesn’t work as expected

Recommended Posts

Windows 10 Home 1903.

I’m not sure if this is a bug, or a feature, or I’m just missing something.
When I power duplicate a shape with child shapes all works as expected but, when I tell Designer to Lock Children, the power-duplicated shapes stay in the position of the original duplicate, see attached GIF.
The child shapes are staying where they are, which is correct, but their duplicated parent shapes stay where they are too, which seems wrong to me.

Is this expected?

(GIF was produced in 1.7.0.367 but this also applies to 1.7.1.390 beta.)

That seems wrong to me, too. :(
