My team is experiencing issues with insertion points. This is certainly not a desirable “feature.” What is happening is we have thousands of models with specific insertion points, that must always insert at that location, thus the purpose of an insertion point. The problem is if you move any instance from any location other than the original insertion point. All other instance insertions now take place at the last known move point, not the insertion point. This bug/feature is incredibly disruptive to our work flow as a move operation is now interfering and effectively redefining our very specific insertion point. Sometimes so many insertion points have been ruined by moves that we have to save, close and reopen our file to restore the proper insertion points. Imagine having to save close and reopen every time you move a few model instances; this is not acceptable. The only other workaround is to move the instance again from the insertion point after every move operation. Please try to imagine that every move operation must be performed twice as well as maintaining a duplicate instance placed outside the working model for the purpose of redefining broken insertion points with a second move; not acceptable. Nobody needs this type of unnecessary repetitive insertion frustration.

Can we please fix Sketchup so that a component instance insertion always takes place at the components insertion point?
