Prevent object from being added to Auto Layout group while dragging by holding down modifier key

Quite often objects tend to end up in an auto layout group by mistake.
It would be nice to be able to hold down the shift key so I can place an object ABOVE an Auto layout group.

You can hold Space bar.

Kind of works! But space bar does not work when it’s already over the group. It does not snap out it. I have to drag the object far away from the group and then hold down space and go back. But, better than nothing!

Yes, their implementation is very strange.

Thank you Gleb!
