center of selection

Hi,
When i draw a polygon with 3 sides, make a polyline of it, select it, and then place a point with snap/center of selection, the point is placed out of the center of the triangle..

The tool Snap > Center of Selection snaps to the center of the bounding box of the selection. This is the middle between the leftmost edge and the rightmost edge and the middle between the bottom most and the top most edge.

For any generic triangle, this neither the centroid, circumcenter, orthocenter nor incenter of the triangle.

If you cannot solve the problem, please:
- indicate the operating system you are using and the version thereof
- indicate the exact version of QCAD you are using (see Help > About or QCAD > About QCAD)
- attach original drawing files (DXF, DWG, ...) if appropriate
- include screenshots if appropriate
Thanks.
