My biggest complaint/suggestion -
It seems the basic building block of SD5 is the "container." That, potentially, makes building a site easier. However, I would love to see something done about manipulating the containers [moving them around]. I know that Inspector is supposed to do that, but it is so hard to see what is what - or maybe it's my old eyes.
I get come really whacky visuals when I drop a container inside a column container, for example, and then flex.
Making containers more easily distinguishable from one another in inspector [maybe by color? Idk.]. Am I moving a container under or into another container?
It's been a long time since we id things together maybe you have forgotten
Go to the tab at the top "Actions"
open it and select "preferences"
There you will see that you can select the "containers border colour (only for visual, not for real), increase the size of the border (it's an overlay so no effect to the layout (I have mine set to 3 or even 4 px for demo's)
You can change the tool tip colour from dark to light, whichever suits your eyes
Below that section are other things you can set up,
By making the border a brighter stronger colour, makes it easier to move things around within other containers etc.
