Well there are SIX align options, so maybe you found an extra :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:

You see how powerful attachment is?

My seventh option would have the wireframe cube fully contained in the solid cube :D

Not really.. Not yet. Which alignment option is this one? That might give me some clue as to what I am seeing.

random thought...

it would be a nice user experience if there would be an arrow showed in the 3d view if one has clicked in one of the attachment properties (the specific property is in "edit" mode).
