Do you think mouse based padding with autolayout is a bad UX?

After playing with the mouse based padding for a while, I find it to be useless most of the time. Padding is important and has to be consistent. I would never want arbitrary values.

Mixing resize controls and padding controls in the same area may be a solution, but the fact that it cannot be used 100% precisely is just in my opinion straight bad usability.

Why don’t you give me an option of holding Shift+Dragging for example?
At the end of the day you have to ask, what’s more important? Resizing or Padding adjustment? The answer just cannot be both as speed is very important.

I just want to quickly resize, damnit! :smiley:
