Sure, I think we are basically talking about the same thing. I would toggle off, resize, then toggle back on each time.

It is this slow, fiddly behavior that I'm trying to avoid. It does work eventually but my workflow grinds to a halt every time I want to do this as I wait several seconds and make several attempts before I can grab the edge. A keyboard shortcut to temporarily disable the overlay would be great. Thanks for the reply & glad I'm not the only one having trouble with it.

Interesting, this isn't in the documentation but seems to work better. Now I'll have to see if I remember...

Also, try using <tab> to autocomplete and make sure you are getting the path correct. For example, sudo ln -s animacion<tab> /media/myuser/nameofdevice/myfolder<tab>. If you use this, you will be able to confirm the paths are exactly correct as Ubuntu will not autocomplete incorrect paths.
