Bug Description

tried to keep summary short.


often in schematics I do a duplicate.

eager as I am , I often start to rotate this copy already during the move of the duplicate (or some other function)

then the move aborts and the original is rotated (if a label for example)

this is not good.

1: if not admitted to rotate during move of the duplicate the rotate should be ignored, and not applied to the original.
2: most most most preferred is of-course to rotate the duplicate, forget about the original, we already made a duplicate and that is where focus is supposed to be.

I could have sworn we had this as a bug report already but can't find it ATM. Definitely something to fix with the canvas update in v5.1

Another problem is that when you move a locked item you are reminded that it is locked when you move it.

thats fine.

but if you rotate it twice after you started to move it you are reminded twice more and need to click away remind pop-up 3 times in total.
