    Hi guys

    Maybe a bug?

    I made a pipe and rotated it to 60deg - then I wanted to change the length, so I wrote another length - let's say 5m instead of 2m.
    (Same issue if I create a pipe from interactive without ortho lock)

    Then the pipe is extended, but also moved. I see that it's because of the 'length' and 'trim' height combination, but it would never be my intension to move it! only adjusting the length.

    I guess a workaround could be converting from a line, but was this behavior really intended?

    We cannot reproduce this here at CAST, after trying with multiple permutations on three separate computers. If you are able to offer the exact series of steps that you take, which always lead to this issue, in case we haven't covered that particular sequence of steps, we will try again.

    Now, I had the time to do a test.
    I missed out some info for you - I rotated the pipe from the front view, so it's actually rotation around the y-axis.

    However it seems I may have forgotten to change the Pipe mode to Start instead of center, so there is no bug I think.
