Building out a flow chart and boxes move everytime I connect them. Thread Tools Search this Thread Display Modes
Why do boxes never stay where I put them as soon as I use the connections. I will complete the placement for all the boxes in a flow chart and as soon as I use a line connection, all the boxes fall into a straight line. So ANNOYING and I'm sure its a setting thing.
Sounds to me like you've got automatic layout turned on -- You can disable it in the Diagram Layout Inspector.

Keep in mind that the built-in templates in the "Brainstorming" and "Organizational Charts" category have this turned on by default, those in "Drawing" and "Space Planning" do not.

Hope that helps,

That's not it... I actuall tried both automactic layout and automactic layout turned off. So this is what happens:

box box box
box box
box box

As soon I put a connection line from the top left box and the box just below it instantly does this:

box box box box box box box box

and I have to start all over with the formation.
Sure sounds like automatic layout to me, if you can send in a sample file to it would be greatly appreciated.
