Autopilot Pitch bug

It’s a really nice feature that the AP doesn’t pitch up/down massively anymore when being engaged and massive trim’s not necessary anymore…

So there’s a bug I had on the 787 (don’t know whether it’s on other aircrafts or not):

When you select VS only and then an altitude (which is much higher than your current one) the AP sometimes pitches up/down even more massively…

Would be nice to see this fixed, cause I like setting the AP in this order (VS and ALT after, instead of ALT+VS)

This was happening to me to a lesser degree today, I found climbing or descending 1000ft from the current FL to solve the problem

Do you activate the A/P just after taking off?

No, I don’t… I activate it during climb when retracting the flaps
