Ok. Yes, but... the contour line is this thing you have to pull with the 
mouse, right? Each edge for itself, and it is thought for making 
non-rectangle contours around non-rectangle pictures. Or am I wrong here?

Anyway, in most cases (it's more than 99 % in my case) I have to simply 
keep some distance to a photo or an ad which is rectangle and should be 
dealt with as a rectangle. If there was a function that kept a distance 
of a definable number of mm to the rectangle boundaries of the frame, it 
would save a lot of clicks and time.

A simple input box (or if you wish it perfect, 4 boxes for the 4 edges 
and maybe even chainable) would do. A value of zero would work as it 
does now, any value above would keep letters a bit away from the frame.
