Graph Editor - Box select and transform keys issue

Short description of error
When you select keys using the box select and transform the keys they behave in a strange way. (see the GIFs below)
Seems like the key handles are not affected by the selection.

In general I think the key/point should be treated as the parent of its handles. And when the key is moved the handles should follow it, no matter if they are selected or not.

If you select a key by just clicking on it it works as expected.

Exact steps for others to reproduce the error

  • Create a few keys for an object in the Graph Editor.
  • Box select a key and move it.

I can confirm this, but it is partially my fault in the Industry Compatible Keymap, which I know you are using. I have the operator set to

"include_handles", True

If I set to

"include_handles", False

It also selects the handles automatically, and they will move correctly.

However, I still think this is a bug, but something we can work around in the keymap.

I fixed the keymap, but will leave this ticket as confirmed, because I think this is still a bug, albeit an obscure one since the default keymaps work around it.

@Campbell Barton (campbellbarton): feel free to re-assign if this is not for you.

Note: to reproduce the issue, you must change the keymap so box select in the graph editor is set to include handles = true.

Closing for the same reason as T70459: Stricktly speaking, it's not a bug, but a design issue. We're trying to address this with T70634.
But thanks nevertheless, helps justifying the changes :)
