This is always true for GUI toolkits which use layout managers. A sketchpad
is much more useful. If you can quickly sketch ut how space should be
divided, there is no need for a GUI builder to construct the GUI. 

You need a GUI builder if the GUI is based on absolute positioning and
anchors, such as Delphi, VB and .NET. In this case manual coding of the GUI
will be extremely tedious.

If you try a GUI builder with layout managers (cf. wxFormBuilder) you will
also find that it does not behave as you expect. Most will just find it
annoying. But a GUI builder can be a nice way of avoiding having to
remember (or look up) all property names.
