# KiCAD - Moving and rotating components with wires connected

I'm a major major noob to KiCAD and having done a couple of tuts in Eagle, I do like the separation of footprints from the schema.

But one thing that took me by surprise is that the wire connections don't stay connected or become weird angled if I move or rotate the components.

I know I can move the components with G or right-clicking and selecting Drag to retain the wiring, but it no longer stays at right angles and starts going in every direction. Is there any way to avoid that?

Secondly, is there any way to rotate the component while maintaining the wire connections?

• When I "grab" and "move", the wires stay connected, but when I "grab" and "rotate" the wire connections are lost... Seems like a bug for me – Jan Jul 20 '18 at 7:42
