PROBLEM

Placement of selection anchor moves after edits are undone

Last Published: April 25, 2020

Description

While in edit mode, modifications made to a feature's selection anchor will not be retained if edits are undone.

Cause

The selection anchor defaults to the center of all selected features. If the selection anchor is moved, and edits to the feature are undone, the selection anchor moves back to its default location.

Solution or Workaround



Reposition the selection anchor.
