Box Spacing

Post by Jim Woodman » Fri Apr 17, 2009 4:16 pm

I am a new and :D user of TreeDraw and still have lots to learn.

I would like to be able to adjust and set the space between boxes to enable me to get more of the tree on a page when I print.

Can it be done.

Hello Jim,

One of the best features of TreeDraw (IMHO) is the ability to move every element of the chart however you like.

For your purposes I think you just need to group each box and its contents and drag them to wherever you like then lengthen/shorten/move lines to suit.

Hi Jim,

You could try increasing the horizontal spacing for the grid in "Options | Appearance | Snap to grid" (and turn the grid on of course).
