Description tommyads 2005-02-24 12:58:28 UTC
The following enhancements would be of interest:
1) Size: horizontal and vertical size of any object (F4 - size and position) 
should be protectable independantly

2) Position: x- and y-position should also be independantly protectable

This would solve e.g. the following problem:
I want to create a compound object (symbolizing a table) which consists of two 
touching rectangles, the upper one with grey filling and symbolizing the first 
row of the table, and the lower one with white filling and symbolizing the rest 
of the table. 
Now the upper one should be fixed/protected only in its height (the first table 
row containing the table-column-names), and the lower one should not be 
protected at all, so tables with different height and width can be drawn.

Now resizing the compound object of the two tables would result in normal width-
resizing for both rectangles, but in height-resizing only for the lower 
rectangle. Well, if this is too hard to solve or maybe not worth the work, then 
an alternative could be just to resize the two rectangles independently, with 
the upper one being protected in its original height.
