Bug #1661

Map does not focus on chosen place

I had a small issue while testing the new maps (tested on Demo Dev 7.2.0). I started entering a new place and set a location on the map. For that, I used the magnifying glass, chose a city and "import ID and coordinates". I saved all the entered information with "Insert". I then proceeded to add a Feature by using the +Feature button.
While with the old maps, the map focused on the place where I set the location when adding a new feature, this is not the case for the new maps anymore. I have to search for the place again and zoom in myself.
This is only a minor inconvenience, but it slows down the workflow.

The same happens when I save the information on the place via the "Insert and add feature" button.

Can confirm, I created a place Odessa (test focus place) and linked it with a point from GeoNames in demo and demo-dev. Now if you add a feature in demo the map is focused/zoomed on Odessa and in demo-dev it isn't, see:

I deactivated the demo reset scripts for now to give Andi, whom I assigned it to, a chance to look at it.
Thank you Nina for testing and reporting. Andi, please let me know if I can be of assistance.

Can confirm that it is now working as expected as you can see in the specified demo-dev links provided before (but only today, I reactivated the reset demo scripts again).
THANADOS is updated too and I removed the issue target version because it was a develop bug.
Thank you Nina for reporting and Andi for fixing it so fast.
