Designer Tools could show Layout node?

I think it'd be useful if the Designer Tools showed the Layout node in the bottom-left panel - so you can see possible alternate names for the layout template. This made it a bit harder to debug when I wasn't seeing my layout override.

But otherwise, the Designer Tools are amazing - just missing this one crucial piece of the entire page composition!

You are absolutely right.

The Layout is the mother of all Shapes, even if it contains only the Body elements. The Document shape is a wrapper around the body which will add the <html /> tag. Then trying to wrap Layout renders an invalid document. There might some solutions for that, but it's not a priority right now.
