Default CorelDRAWX3 activeselection error

Hi to all, I have a code that works well on CorelDRAW 11 and 12: I draw 2 or more shapes at the center of a page, then I manually change the rotation center of the active selection to a corner of the page and I run the next code :

Sub mytest()
    Dim st As String
    st = "RotationcenterX : " & ActiveSelection.RotationCenterX & vbCr
    st = st & "RotationcenterY : " & ActiveSelection.RotationCenterY
    MsgBox st
End Sub
I have tested on corelDRAW 11 and 12, and it shows me the rotation center that i selected,,, but recently I tested on a computer with CorelDRAW X3 and instead it shows me the center of the shape, what happens with activeselection????, i'm using CorelDRAW !!!

Pd. I use WindowsXP

Default Looks like...

it might be a bug, you are correct that the center is not correctly reported. I tested using CorelDRAW X3 build 739.

yes, it is an annoying X3 bug. Almost two years passed yet nothing's changed :-( so try to use a workaround, maybe group shapes first

Default rotationcenter

Hi to all, Thanks for your advise.

Activeselection rotationcenter:
- On CorelDRAW11 works well
- On CorelDRAW12 works, but if you make a transformation (using code) and you read the property again its lost.
- On CorelDRAW13 don't work.

Pd: it's possible to make a virtual shape of a range of shapes? (activeselection with 2 or more shapes) to read the rotationcenter???, I know you can do a virtualshape of one shape, but it's possible with more than one?
