Align to artboard not working for svgs added through File/Place
I added an svg to use (with File/Place) and wanted it to be centered. After clicking to align to artboard and clicking the Horizintal Align Center button it never actually centers. It moves a bit each click until it stops working all together (almost parabolic as seen in the attached gif).
Everything worked fine on objects created from within that file

I've experienced this issue as well for a few versions of Illustrator. I'm trying to submit a bug for the same issue but it doesn't look like it's going to upload. I've found a work around for this, if you delete the <title> layer that is grouped to the SVG from the layers panel then the image aligns properly, at least in my experience. I would still say this is a bug and it's really annoying to have to delete every title layer for every icon when making a UI when you expect that the align tools should work how they do with everything else.
