I think that was the problem - and why the check was present. (Of 
course, the check should only ever have been done whilst the user was 
*editing* in the IDE, and not in the normal course of things - but 
that's an entirely different matter).

Prior to 8.0, if your control was smaller than 8x8 it was virtually 
impossible to use the edit handles as they were 'interior' to the 
object. I suspect that was why the minimum size restriction was put in 
place.

Since 8.0, however, edit handlers are on the corners of the controls 
meaning that you can still easily resize a control which is 1x1. This 
probably means that check can actually be removed without any adverse 
effects.

Warmest Regards,

Mark.
