Is Pad position correct in KICAD v8 PCB Editor?

I’d just updated to version 8.0.2.

However, I am posting a question because there is something strange.

The position values of the footprint and center pad are different.

Is it correct?

This phenomenon also occurs in 8.0.1.
(I believe version 8.0.0 will also cause the same problem.)

This is reported as bug and is tracked in gitlab issue [PCB Editor] Pad properties show the wrong coordinates (#17553) · Issues · KiCad / KiCad Source Code / kicad · GitLab


I think that bug is a copy of this earlier reported bug:


If you open the properties panel on the Left hand side: View > Show Properties Manager, you will see the correct co-ordinates. Only the Properties Window is faulty, not the Properties Panel.

The problem is also in 8.99 as reported.
