Have option to show outlines of all controls in studio

Hello all,


It might be useful to have an option in the canvas studio to show the outlines of all controls on the screen. This would assist to see spacing and alignment at a glance without having to click on each control. Currently if a control's border is set to 0, it is not easy to see exact which area of the screen the control consumes. The outlines could be shown in a light intrusive grey or dotted line.


Below are two examples:

And a way to toggle those on/off.

I use ctrl+A to select and show all item boundaries on screen for this same reason, so would be nice to have a Boundaries overlay we could toggle on/off.
