Description Telesto 2017-04-17 09:36:32 UTC
The position of the textbox in a shape is wrong, if shape is contained in a frame and the textbox is added afterward. 

It happens with a 'Insert Caption" frame or adding a regular frame (Insert -> Frame). The effect is the same as report in bug 84691 

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open attached file
2. Add a textbox to the circle (by right clicking the circle and click add textbox)
3. Add a textbox to the triangle 

After saving and re-opening the position of the textboxes changes again (likewise as in bug 84691)

Actual Results:  
Textbox is misplaced

Expected Results:
Textbox should be correctly positioned

Reproducible: Always

User Profile Reset: No
