Sizing and Scale

In the top left corner of a selected Lifeline element are the left and right quick sizing buttons (Quicksize). These buttons increase or decrease the width of the Lifeline element, which in turn controls the scale width of each time unit. By increasing the width of the element you increase the resolution when adding transitions, which makes them easier to edit.
