Capture mouse in a bounding box?

Hi Werner,
no, there is no such feature. I would recommend to just not follow the 
mouse with the dragged object outside of the bounds. You can file a 
feature request to Jira if you want. Frankly, I don't think it will get 
a high priority unless you provide really compelling reason for it (I 
don't think it's an encouraged pattern, usually it's pretty frustrating 
for the user when the mouse doesn't move).
