Ungrouping autolayouts should not affect what the design looks like

Hi all,

When ungrouping complex components that use autolayout, you often ungroup autolayout frames, causing them to change, since the “fill” on the frame dissapears.

Let’s say you hit ⌘+Shift+G in this situation. You end up with this:

My proposal would be that the autolayout would first turn into a regular frame on the first ungroup step, and then delete the frame on the next step.

You can do this manually now by using the “remove autolayout” button (marked in a red box below) , but that requires a slow mouse interaction. I wish I could do it with a familiar keyboard shortcut.

What do you think of this idea? Does anyone else experience this?
