Horizontal-only-scale drag handle on short elements like text fields

This small but frustrating issue has been such a common recurring problem for me. See attached. I know if I made the field much taller, the horizonal drag/scale handle would appear, but text fields are always short, I'm always tweaking the length, and it seems like there's room to fit the handle. Why not have it?

    You can zoom in a little bit to get the middle handle to show up. Basically, we end up in a situation where the circles overlap, and you can’t easily figure which handle you’re pulling. Let us know if this addresses your issue!

        I've found I have to zoom into about 175% to see the middle horizontal drag handles for text fields. At this zoom level, I can't see the rest of my wire frame / guides.
