I'm not sure if this is a bug or the side effect of some new feature, but I've been having an issue with extrusions along a specific axis in blender 2.90. I am wondering if anyone else has experienced this and can either a) explain it, or b) verify it is a reportable bug.
In the images below, I have attempted to extrude a section by using the extrude hotkey E + axis letter. In the first photo, I extruded along the Y axis (E+Y), and in the second, I extruded along the Z axis (E+Z). As you can see, both "axis letters" produced movement in the same direction. I know it may be hard to tell from the screenshots, but the vertical extrusion line is green (Y) in one photo, and blue (Z) in the other, yet the extruded face moves along the same (Z) axis regardless. Selecting a face with a normal that points towards the desired direction and extruding by simply pressing E works as intended.
Would someone be able to either confirm or refute that this is currently a universal phenomenon with Blender 2.90?
Steps to reproduce:
Start with default cube (or added cube - makes no difference)
Select one of the "side faces"
Attempt to extrude the face along the Y axis by using E+Y
Notice that the extrusion follows the Z axis instead of the Y (If I am correct that this is a universal problem with 2.90)
If this is not a bug, but rather an intended feature, could someone please explain the logic of why this is happening? Any feedback would be very helpful.
