Parts of traces vanish after aligning connected objects

PCB View

Steps I took that resulted in the problem:

Two headers connected by traces. Ctrl+clicked both, chose Part → Align → Align Horizontal Center.

What I expected should have happened instead:

I would expect parts to align (which they do) without the portions of the traces vanishing.

NOTE: The traces are still there; grabbing any bend point and moving it will restore that trace’s visibility. I’ve also had it add additional bend points.

Please also attach any files that help explaining this problem


Your best bet is to open an issue on github here:

as that is the bug tracking repository. It would be useful to supply a copy of the sketch (the .fzz file, you will need to rename it to as github won’t accept .fzz files) as well (preferably before the change, then after the change) so the issue can be reproduced.
