Group layout with custom node positions

Hello I’m trying to create nested groups with layout, but when i add layout to the group and a new node is added the positions reset to the initial layout. is there any way to have both layout and custom position of each node?

Are you setting or binding the location of each of the new nodes? If so, I suppose you could set or bind Part.isLayoutPositioned to false on those nodes, so that they do not participate in any automatic layout.

thanks a lot
