Positioning unconnected bones in pose mode using cursor

by jzxz234   Last Updated October 04, 2018 20:15 PM

I'm still learning and I am currently having problems positioning unconnected bones accurately in pose mode when using the 3d cursor.

I have one bone positioned correctly and I then need to add a new unconnected bone so I select bone 1 in edit mode and then press Shift+A to add a new bone. I then need to align it to a object so I switch to pose mode and then select the object and press shift+S and select cursor to selected, then I select the bone and press shift+S and select selection to cursor. The bone is now positioned correctly but if I switch to edit mode then the bone is in the wrong position. Am I doing something wrong?
