Enhanced Usability: Workspace and Tool Containers


  1. In the workspace (i.e. the white space) the perimeter is not fixed so when working with tool containers near a border and you place a tool inside the container the container expands outside the workspace, which makes the container useless since you can't select it
  2. The ability to disable multiple tool containers at once

 Thought I'd share my hack about tool containers in the meantime. If you hit ctrl-0 or zoom out of your view, it will resize the workflow so that you can see the container borders and then move or resize it. Then you can zoom back in when you're done. 


The first part of this (1) should be resolved with the 11.0 release. It should be prevented from going offscreen.
