When resizing a layer that contains tables inside, the behavior is inconsistent depending on which handle is used to resize it:

The following handles resize the layer but also move the inner tables:
  - top handle
  - left handle
  - upper left handle
  - bottom left handle

The rest of the handles behave in the most useful way; resizing the layer without moving its inner tables.

How to repeat:
1. Open MySQL Workbench
2. Click File >> New Model
3. Double click the "Add Diagram" to add a new diagram
4. Draw a new layer
5. Create a new table inside the layer
6. Click the layer to make the transform handles visible
7. Drag the handles mentioned in the description to see the problem

Suggested fix:
All the transform handles should behave consistently, ideally resizing the layer without moving its contents.

This allows to easily adjust the padding of the layer in relation to the inner tables, and therefore it's easier to make more space to add more tables inside the layer if needed.
