May I make a suggestion. Why not automatically place non-visual
components (eg: TOpenDialog, TSaveDialog etc) in a dedicated non-visual
area outside the designed form: eg: in a panel above the "Code,
Designer" tabs shown in the video. It could even be order alphabetically.

I never understood why non-visual components lived inside the designer
form at a specific x,y position - cluttering up your designer form. Even
the streaming had to be "hacked" to support a fake x,y position for
these non-visual components.
