Description PJ 2012-05-10 11:30:19 UTC
Steps to reproduce:

Add a button
Set the top margin to a dimen resource


Expected result

Button is separated from from the side you edited by the value of the resource
When you are in margin-mode (as opposed to size mode), a dotted line appears between the widget and the margin edge


Actual result

Button is separated from from the side you edited by the value of the resource
The margin handle sits on the widget and there is no visual indicator of the size of the margin.

Changing title to be more generic as this issue has a few behaviors - also changing priority because while the original issue is not a severe behavior, the overall issue is of normal severity.


Another behavior is that setting a margin to a dimen resource results in a failure to build. Example:

Another behavior is 4982
