Suggestion: composite creation window

It would be really nice to have a second, smaller editing window to drag components into and resize, edit, and combine them before dragging them onto the main hull. Way too many times I’ve dropped a piece onto an already dense design and then spent the next thirty seconds trying to reselect it because the editor insists on selecting all of the things underneath it instead, or I’ve put a component into the window and it somehow adds an already existing component to the selection with it so I end up resizing both of them when I didn’t want to.
