Hello everybody(*)

when you move a obejct in layout, and then, you parenting it to other object, it makes a jump to other place! (it took new cordinate system of "father", I think)

How can I parenting a object to some other object, and it hold his original place (before parenting) after do parenting?

* Sorry for my english, I am not from a english lenguage's country native.
I hope to be quite clear in my question.

It is kind of annoying at first but it atually does serve a purpose to have the object move. Sometimes when you have to place a null object (as a goal in an IK chain for example), it's nice to have the null jump to the object you parent it to instead of having to move it there manually. Saves some time. After a while, you'll get used to when you have to use parent in place and when you won't want to.
