UI Editor does not work with UI in folders

Editing UI that is stored in a folder causes an error, which seems to be caused by the plugin checking for the parent’s AbsoluteSize and AbsolutePosition, which a folder does not have as it is a GuiObject.

Repro: Make a GUI, put a folder in it, then put a GuiObject in this folder. You will not be able to resize or reposition this element, and you will see an error every time you try.

Any progress on this?
Still a problem in the latest studio update at time of writing.
Using folders is very important for organization but it’s disappointing to see a total lack of support for it when it comes to Gui’s.

Example of it happening in-studio:

Granted, it’s probably a low priority bug as you don’t Have to use folders, but if you have a lot of GuiObjects in a frame then it can get tedious to sort through it all manually, fairly certain this wasn’t always a problem and it should be quite simple to fix.
For the moment, simply not using folders should do.
