      Objects outside width can modify layout's size

      Description of the issue

      When the dimensions of a layout is smaller than the active window, an object even placed outside layout's width boundary can affect the size of the layout.

      Steps to reproduce the problem

      STEP 1
      Configure a small layout in form view, with only a body part and some objects that are all Left and Top anchored.
      STEP 2
      Add one object outside the layout's width boundary (on the right). Add all anchors on this object.
      STEP 3
      In Browse Mode adjust the windows size until it is greater than your layout's dimensions.

      Expected result

      The layout and its content should not be resized.

      Actual result

      The layout and its content are resized.

      Exact text of any error message(s) that appear

      Workaround
