Short description of error
Using Individual Origins and Translate tool (with Transform Orientation set to Normal) moves each vertex along it's normal.
When it should treat isolated selections as individual islands.

Exact steps for others to reproduce the error

  1. Open attached blend file:
  2. Use Translate manipulator (or press G then hit Z twice to enter "normal" mode).
  3. In result you should see how each vertex moves along it's normal.

@Germano Cavalcante (mano-wii) I’d bet change in behavior is due to rB21f376780941f986e99?

Thing is, I still think it makes more sense to actually handle items (verts, faces…) individually in that case, looks like we could use one additional Pivot option ("Island Center" ?) here… @Campbell Barton (campbellbarton) may also have some ideas?

Bastien Montagne (mont29) lowered the priority of this task from 90 to Normal.May 29 2017, 9:45 AM

I can't think of a single use case where handling each vertex is more preferable than island during translate operation. But I can bring a lot use cases for handling whole island in hard surface area, including jewelry modeling.

If I want to move each element along it's normal, then Shrink/Flatten is obviously a better choice here.

Can this be reverted to the previous behavior before the release? I depend on this very often in my work.

And it also breaks behavior consistency when selection always behaves like island, except when you use translate along normal.
