So, how can one create say a box at the bottom of the page to put some textual information, and prevent it from covering/being covered by plots when cleaning up the layout ?
Maybe there are two different notions here: followsFlow() to say it should be moved when relayouting and borderObject() (or smth of the kind) to say plots or other view objects should not cover that object (basically, they would be "pinned on top" and determine areas where cleanup layout can't put anything). We could add a checkbox in the UI for such objects, and try to find a simple enough algorithm to determine the useful plotting area (in the simplest case, the interior rectangle as explained above, and it would be up to the user to make sure that he does not put such objects in the middle).
Should I open a separate report for this as I don't think the current functionality allows it ? I could also post screenshots of what I expect to be able to do easily...
