Auto layout is mostly great, but has its issues. You create an auto layout it reflows automatically based on what's visible. But I wish the "bounding box" for the auto layout would shrink to what's currently visible, so that other items — in my case in a "parent" auto layout — could reflow too.

In the image, "rule settings" is an auto layout inside another auto layout. When "Notate for SOC" is active, it shows a hidden group. But when it's hidden it still takes up space and affects the bounding box.

Would love it if hidden items in normal groups didn't affect the bounding box unless they're actually visible too.

There is a workaround using a cropped group, but that gets a bit messy.
