Problem with moving a control valve

Hello!

 

I have a problem if I move a control valve together with a line. The body of the cv and the line move to selected position, but the actuator of the cv moves the double of the distance. I attached two screenshots. I hope the problem is understandable and someone can help me.

 

Thanks in advance.

We had a similar problem with moving objects in 2013. Some of the objects would move the desired distance, while others would move exactly double the distance. Autodesk confirmed the issue and supposedly have either fixed it in 2014 or are in the process of fixing it.

This issue has not been dealt with in 2014 as we are having the same problem, how did you overcome this issue ?

C_Ryder,

The problem still persists for us as well, but primarily appears to manifest itself upon moving a larger selection of objects. Also, the objects that move double the distance are typically annotation-based items. To my knowledge, we've never experienced the issue with control valves.

Hello Craig,

what do you mean with "Annotation-based items"?

TOPElo,

 

For us, the issue would happen only to items defined as annotations or items on the "Annotation" layer. I'm not sure which of these two was the determining factor, but either way text items would move double the distance.

 

Thanks,

Craig
