Preference to invert Spacebar drag hotkey

When dragging objects, I only want them to nest into a frame when the frame is used as a “screen” or the main frame of the composition.

I almost never want to drag an object unconsciously to end up in a frame, unless it is to enter the main frame of the composition.

Currently, the way to avoid this behaviour is to drag and press “spacebar”, which is counterintuitive and slowing down my process. Also, it doesn’t “force” an object to enter a frame, which is the most common behaviour I’d want, to force an object.

For this, I would personally would like to be able to invert this shortcut in order to use it when wanting to consciously nest an object in a frame, but never have the surprise to drag an object to see it randomly nested.

Does anyone else experience this?
