FS#171 - Distinctive colors for grab handles of "No insert in" and "No copy" controls

Perhaps also a “Insert in” and “Allow copy” menu items, so user doesn’t have to close the form and reopen it to regain full editing capability over controls.

As a user, I am not very happy that when a Group that has No insert in set, attempting to add a control to the group selects the group and moves it – thus loosing its position, and causing me to restore it to its proper position. (Perhaps one gets a "ding": don't know because I have dings etc turned off). Yes, I know that I can Undo the move – but I have to remember that I can Undo.

I think that what should happen is either:

  • Palette activates white arrow and nothing else happens, or
  • The group's grab handles flash and nothing else happens.

Just a thought
