I had a weird experience today. 

Somehow, I included the primitive ID of a polyline (just an 'indicator' off-sheet of my drawing) in a drill MOp.

It DRILLED THE CENTROID of the polyline! 

Now... it didn't hurt anything, because it was off-sheet, "in the air", but it could have!  How is anything but a point or a circle a 'drillable' object?

Man!  0.98.  I've never seen this before.  (Obviously, I've not made this mistake before, so it was quite a surprise!).

Hello

Yes, this is not new, the drill mop use the center of any selected object as drill center ; for electronics some use that to drill to the center of a square/rectangle used as soldering point.

Ok... then, not a 'bug'.  But it's still something to be VERY aware of, and cautious of!

Yeah... I simulated EVERY run but this one, thinking it would be "a simple thing".  Duh!

Heck!  I _always_ simulate every run.  No... not this time.

'Good lesson!
