Bug details

Double-clicking an object changes anchor points

XD version - beta

To reproduce

1) Draw a rectangle (most noticeable if small and zoomed right in)
1,a) Alt+drag this now if you like to see the difference when selecting between the two
2) Double-click on the path to select an anchor point
3) Move this anchor point left 1px, then right 1px
4) The anchor points have now changed to sit in the centre of the stroke (the x or y position is now .5 more or less than it was).

This wouldn't be an issue except at 100% the stroke's noticeably blurry.

    It's just strange behaviour when there's no visual cue - the border radius buttons also disappear after it converts it to a path, which, ironically, is the only way to now tell if it's a path or rect/ellip.
    I'll log the blurriness as a separate issue.

    This is as-designed. Basically, rectangles and ellipses are inner-stroked, while lines and paths are center-stroked. What you're doing when you double click is changing the rectangle to a path. We try to maintain the visual consistency of the path to what you originally drew, though, so you get this little "hop."
