I have LAB diagram with many components and component exchanges with a fine layout.
You can find an example below:
I would like to add a LC6 component, parent of LC1-LC4, without impairing existing layout.
LC6 added to the diagram
LC1-LC4 moved inside LC6
Is there any way to avoid this behaviour and preserve existing layout?
You can clone your diagram before adding the LC6 component ; by this way, when you will add LC6 component you will be able to copy/paste the internal LCx components layout of your current diagram.
Hope this helped you.
Yes there is using the copy and paste layout functionality.
First I have my diagram which I want to copy the layout from - which does not have element “AA”
And I have the diagram which I want to paste the layout to - which does have element “AA”
I select the elements I want to copy (ctrl-A in this case) from the first diagram and hit the copy button.
I then go to the diagram I want to paste to and hit the “paste layout” buttom.
This results in the below layout.
After which, I simply resize element “AA” as required.
EDIT… while I was posting @SMonier also posted. The cloning of the diagram as suggested makes this process even easier than starting from a new blank diagram.
