Description _ viendu 2006-03-05 04:57:00 UTC
When select a component in the matisse editor, please show all 4 anchor handlers
around the component.  Right now, it shows 2 anchors, but not as handlers, so
you cannot grap them with a mouse and attached it to where it need to attach. 
You should show the anchors as an arrow (or similar thing) points to nowhere if
it does not anchor to another component or edge.  If the component anchors to
the left that is on the same line as left edge, the anchor line should be broken
into multiple segments to show the effect (versus not showing anything, or just
a dot).  Users can select the anchors and set its properties (if any).
