Complete the following steps to add space to the front panel or block diagram without resizing the window.

  1. Press <Ctrl> and use the Positioning tool to click the front panel or block diagram. (macOS) Press <Option>. The Positioning tool cursor changes from an arrow to a plus sign.
  2. While holding the key combination, drag in the direction you want to add space. The objects move in real time as you drag the mouse. If the direction you drag is primarily vertical or horizontal, the operation snaps to the dominant direction.
  3. Release the mouse button to set the position of the objects.

To reduce the space between scattered objects, press <Ctrl-Alt> and drag in the direction you want to reduce the space. (macOS) Press <Option-Ctrl>.
