Re: Visible controls - Design canvas exception

> Why wouldn't the circle itself count as the visual indicator that those hidden resize / rotate controls exist?

Ah, so that gets onto a slightly different question of what counts as a visible indicator.

One of the key examples we started with (as a known problem case) was a certain popular CMS interface where the page you are editing is shown as a preview, and hovering over the editable areas showed the controls.

See example 2 in this doc:

So if something can be editable in some scenarios (e.g. the CMS interface, the design interface), but then displayed in exactly the same way when it isn’t editable (i.e. the published page, the published design), how could that count as the visible indicator that edit controls are available?
