Summary0004259: Alignment of strokes frames
DescriptionThe procedure: Put a frame with a big, colored stroke (20 pt) on a
document. When aligning this frame to a guideline, the *middle* of the
stroked frame is used for aligning it to the guideline.

I made a screenshot:

 From my intention, it would be better to use the outer side of the
stroked frame for aligning it to the guide ..??
Steps To ReproduceSee above :-)

Problem is sometimes you want to align on the outside of the object, and sometimes you want to align the "structure" of the object.

Would require some kind of option in the align window.

Additionally, there's an RFE or something somewhere for setting whether the border line is centered (like now), inside, or outside the frame with respect to the frame width/height shown in properties.

One _still_ might want to align/snap on any of these no matter which is selected, though.
