Description

In legend properties, checking the "Resize to Fit contents" does what's expected. But despite the checked state, one can still easily manually resize the frame. I think it shouldn't be allowed.

Then, may be a consequence of the above issue, when the option is checked and you resize the frame, you need to uncheck then recheck the box to have the frame fit its contents.

Giving it more tests, it appears that when "Resize to fit contents" is checked, user can manually enlarge the item and it will keep that new size. But the next time he clicks on it, it's resized back fit to contents automatically. This could mislead/confuse some users.

I think we should just disable the ability to resize the legend item when this option is checked.
