Duplicating is going off grid

Severity
Minor

Frequency
Once

Area of Game Affected
Buildings

Description
Not sure if this is a bug or not, in the first image, the pilar is shown like it is correctly lined up with the grid, the 2nd image shows 2 pillars selected going off grid (duplicating from left to right) and 3rd image shows right to left~





Steps to Reproduce
Use some wooden pillars I guess?
 
Are you using Ctrl X to duplicate?

If so, is the Axis set to World or Object axis?
Sometimes when you duplicate a selection of items, they get a FUNNY object Axis which doesnt align.

Can confirm this. It is quite annoying!

just stack 2 wooden pilars and then duplicate them against the wall.

There wouldn't be much point in me saving a blueprint as I worked around it by selecting a wall piece with them, moving it, and then deleting he wall after they were in place~
 
I have seen this bug occur many times whenever you copy a piece on a building. However, Thinygam3r and I found if you press the 'M' key while moving a piece that got mis-aligned, it seems to reset it back to the proper grid. Try this out and let us know if it works.

The bug basically appears to be that when you duplicate a grid item, it will randomly set it just slightly off the grid. Annoying but at least we think we figured out how to work around it. Would be nice to get this fixed.

Edit: Nevermind, I realized you were moving non-grid items. The issue we are having is when duplicating a grid piece such as a roof or a wall, it gets offset from the grid. In your case, you are using pieces that are not grid-locked which means if your axis is off slightly, it won't stay even with the wall etc. and that can get shifted simply through duplicating as mentioned by 1nsane.
