Remove space

To save space, you can remove an empty, or to be more precise, object-free area from your model in order to decrease the width and/or height of the modeling area.

The following procedure shows how to remove horizontal space. The same procedure applies for removing vertical space.


  1. Click on Insert/Remove space (left/right).
  2. In the model window, click on the position starting from which you want to remove space, and hold the mouse button down.
  3. Drag the visible end line to the left and release the mouse button at the position where you want to stop removing space. You cannot remove more space than the space that exists between two objects. This prevents objects from overlapping.

The model items positioned to the right of the start line will be moved to the left. The connections are adjusted.
