Visual feedback of constraint conflicts

Please follow the format below for requesting a feature.

Sometimes while sketching, I get an information bubble for a few seconds that says, ”This constraint would conflict with existing ones.” Then I need to figure out what I did that is blocking my action. Sometimes easy, sometimes it takes a while to get it right. I would like to see a quick visual indication of where the conflict is. For instance, have the conflicting constraint be highlighted in red—and only for the amount of time that the information bubble is on the screen.

The problem that this feature will solve:
Quicker resolution of constraint conflicts. I think that it may also help condition me where to look, and how to be better when applying constraints. With HBPM, I have found use of constraints to be even more important.

Brief description of the outcomes that you expect from this feature:
Quicker sketching.

What can’t you achieve without this feature?
Nothing. It would just help in getting sketches correct quicker.

Yes, great point, there is a lot of room for improvement. We are making significant improvements in sketch error handling with the release of history based modeling.
