Imported Components From Library don't resize as expected

I pulled in, using the component import from library function, a component from our team library that has fixed width and hugs height content.

the height hugging went well, as I typed the component expanded, but when I resized the width I noticed the entire component scaling

while I would welcome scaling if I dragged from the sides, I was expecting dragging from the width to just expand the width, am I doing something wrong? is there a function much like Figma where we resize and not scale our selection?

This is how I’m using the component I created, while drawing a value steam map.

I also noticed that sometimes I trigger a behaviour while editing the title (if I double click I think) where the component looses it’s fixed size and starts growing horizontally as if it was set to hug content width, which is ok but not what I had in mind.
