Mirrored points do not show up after re-opening saved file.


Hello,

I am using Cinderella version 2.6, build 1610.

My specific problem requires extensive use of the 'mirror' tool to reflect a point across a line segment.

This tools seems to have some issues. When I initially click on a line, and then a point, the mirrored point will not appear until I have moved the viewport slightly, but moreover, when I save, close, and re-open the file, the mirrored point, and all pieces of the construction that attach to that mirrored point are not visible.

If I try to mirror the point again after opening the file, suddenly all the pieces that were attached to the mirrored point it will show up, however, this is exceptionally annoying given that I have constructions with dozens of mirrored points, and I have to re-apply the mirroring each time to make them visible again.

I am currently working around this by using a line through the line segment, a perpendicular line through the original point, and then a circle at the point of intersection and the original point, its certainly making things tedious.

Is this a bug, or am I just applying the mirror tool wrong?

Thanks
