Option to disable direct manipulation of margins, auto-layout spacing

I am constantly screwing up my margins when I try to resize a frame. That’s because the threshold between resizing the frame and resizing its margin is about two pixels.


Plus, the flashing on-and-off of all those pink-hashed areas is noisy and distracting. I’m sure some people find this direct manipulation useful, and in rare case where I want to use it, sure – I’ll turn it back on.

But I’m forever discovering screwed-up margins in my design: mistakes I could not have made by accident using the Design panel.

Please provide an option to disable direct manipulation of margins and auto-layout spacing.

Or at bare minimum, come up with an interaction model for directly resizing margins that isn’t so error-prone.
