Option to disable drag/drop into auto layout

Auto layout is super, but I still like to draw and try stuff ad hoc. When there is an auto layout below this becomes a huge frustration (1st world problem) since dragging or drawing on top of it tries to add it to the layout.

Would it be a good idea to be able to disable “auto add to layout” in a setting or something?

I almost never drag an object in an AL anyway, since it’s impossible to know where it wille be dropped (unless it’s a very simple/shallow frame).

My 2 cents.

Hey Ben :wave:t3: :grinning_face_with_smiling_eyes: Thanks for the feedback - I’ve made sure to pass it over to the team working on auto-layout.
