Cropping animations wrecks orientations

Bugs will be moved here once resolved.

Steps to reproduce:
1. Follow Platformer tutorial
2. Apply cropping to both animations - as per tutorial

Observed result:
The Asteroid's centre-point has moved outside it's bounding box and it skips around.
The Planet/Platform it no longer aligned to grid/itself.

Expected result:
No change.
Unfortunately the backup setting was set to 1 (default) so there aren't any proofs that I'm not mental.
And the Undo only goes back 20 steps - which for animations is useless.

Browsers affected:

I've managed to reproduce the before and after - imperfectly. You can see one of the problems - the planet/platform issue, but not the other main problem (with the asteroid). It's the best I can do.

Each project is clearly labelled and also contains the original layout of the offending project for comparison.

Can't reproduce: in your pre-crop example if I hold shift+crop it crops all frames correctly and does not make the object move around. It looks like you simply clicked somewhere accidentally and mis-placed the origin. Please make sure your bug reports are exhaustive in detailing precisely what you do, in what order, and how - I don't know if you did something different to me, and you're referring to a pretty long tutorial with lots of steps.

New users commonly report their own mistakes as bugs so please be careful with making reports if you are not familiar with the tool.

Perhaps I'll post them in the general forum in future. The steps are exact. That's why I went to the trouble of reproducing it twice. It's the best I can do, I'm afraid.

It happens every time.

You can close it if you like, it's still happening but it's not the end of the world.
