    GraphView ignores margin for selection rectangle.
    On the attached gif, you can see what GraphView does if it adds a margin to the element itself, or to its contentContainer

    I heard an argument that GraphView and its contentContainer have absolute positioning. But it is not. I added a margin and background-color to them without any problems and watched the appearance of the border and offset. However, the selection rectangle shifts and is not under the cursor.

    To confirm, which element specifically did you add a margin to to get this bug?

    If you added it to GraphView, or its contentContainer, and it offset the selection rectangle then this might be a bug. You can send it in to support, just keep in mind GraphView is not a supported API (it is Experimental). It will not even go public at the same time as UIElements and it is primarily used internally.

    It is a pity, in the future it would be good. Well, then I will not look in the direction of using it.
