As far as I know the GM is good for simple rearranging of a few objects, but can quickly become overwhelmed by a complex layout. I, and I think many other developers, prefer to roll our own on a card-by-card basis. It can become tedious with lots of controls to arrange, but once it’s set up, it’s fast and reliable.
