      Description

      When I am building and want to stretch an object along a narrow axis more than a short distance the nearby white stretch boxes often interfere with my ability to pick the axis stretch box. The attached image, Stretch.png, illustrates a non-pickable green stretch box.

      A somewhat unsatisfactory workaround is to zoom in very closely, but then my ability to make a long stretch is not possible because while stretching I soon encounter the edge of the screen.

      Proposed solution:
      Add an optional keyboard modifier so that when stretching it is possible to disable the white corner stretch selection boxes. X, Space, and Tab are close to Ctrl+Shift and not in use as a shortcut. Thus Ctrl+Shift+<additional key> or Stretch radio button selected + <additional key> would disable the white stretch boxes.
