Resizing elements with constraints should actually respect the constraints

When you resize an element with right constraints inside a parent layer, the element expands towards the right and off the page (layer). I can’t think of a scenario where I would want this behavior. When I set a constraint, I don’t want to readjust the spacing from where it was originally while editing.

Can anyone think of an example where this would not be desired behavior?

Yep, that would be nice. Auto layout layers already do that when you resize something inside of them. Why not regular layers?
