circular pattern centering bug

This is not bug exactly. Pattern Editor centers the pattern by pads and that's why the origin is moved.

If anyone is interested, the workaround is to start with four pads, center the pattern and then change the number of pads to the desired odd number without re-centering the pattern again.

Perhaps when you center a circle of pads you should use the radius instead of the pads.
