Selection box of objects when rotated

Legend
Legend

Hello,

 

When I use representation area with a frame and then rotate it the clickable area remains as the un-rotated frame.

 

This is visible when dragging a rotated object, the area shown is the area that is clickable.

 

Has anyone else experienced this?

Plant Simulation creates a box around the icon. You read it with getBoundingBox .

What's wrong with it?

When rotated the icon looks like Rotated.png, but I can still select the frame by clicking inside the boundingbox (where the name SubFrame appears) which is invisible. In a big layout with lots of sub frames that are close together this becomes very difficult to navigate leading to clicking on the wrong frame.

 

If dragged, like in Dragged.png the boundingbox is shown. It would be helpful if the boundingbox was also rotated. I guess I will have to rotate the contents of the frame instead of the frame  to solve this.
