Editing imported gerbers doesn't really work (any more?)

#1 Post by 0xdeadbeef » 14 Oct 2019, 06:03

I recently tried to edit a stencil to make it easier to cut with my plotter. I'm pretty sure I did this several months (maybe even a year) ago successfully, but with the current version 3.3.1.3 editing just doesn't work any more.
I.e. when I click on an imported rectangle (e.g. imported as paste layer), the drag markers appear at the sides of the rectangle, but when I try to increase the size of the rectangle by dragging them, the whole rectangle disappears. When I start dragging right (and the rectangle already disappeared) and then continue dragging left, a new rectangle is created to the left starting from the position where I changed direction.
With this weird behavior, sensible editing is more or less impossible. Is this a known issue? Are any workaround to get this to work again?
