Stretch - selected, but unstretched lines vanish

Jim Winkler
This problem seems to have reappeared. I mentioned it on the closed bug report.
https://sourceforge.net/p/librecad/bugs/31/
Note: leading zeros shown for clarity of decimal.

Draw a rectangle 0,0 to 1,1
Draw a line 0,2 to 1,2
Select line
Tools/Modify/Stretch
Specify first corner: -0.5,0.5
Specify second corner: 1.5,1.5
Specify reference point: 0,0
Specify target point: 0,-0.5

Result:
Rectangle is stretched to 0,0 - 1,0.5
Line has vanished

Repeat - showing stretch including selected line does not vanish line
Draw a rectangle 0,0 to 1,1
Draw a line 0,2 to 1,2
Select line
Tools/Modify/Stretch
Specify first corner: -0.5,0.5
Specify second corner: 1.5,2.5 (note 2.5 to include selected line)
Specify reference point: 0,0
Specify target point: 0,-0.5

Result:
Rectangle is stretched to 0,0 - 1,0.5
Line has moved to 0,1.5 - 1,1.5

Thanks! -Jim

I have tested it, you are right. But what's the point, the stretch command doesn't need anything selected previously, selection is done by pulling up the selection window when requested.

Re: Stretch - selected, but unstretched lines vanish

I find that things sometimes just vanish, sometimes large parts of my drawings, likely from being selected before stretching. This may happen when items are selected and not in the view. I might be focused on the stretch and don't notice other things being selected.  Sometimes things get selected outside of my selection box - a bug I presume. On occasion, I don't notice significant deletions for awhile and abandon all my changes by reloading the file. I often hit escape several times or check the selected items count to make sure everything is unselected before doing a stretch. I would find it quite desirable to fix this problem.
