Adjusting swimlanes
« on: November 19, 2020, 09:47:36 am »

There are a number of posts preserving the contents within a lane when using "Swimlanes and Matrix" .


This post is for a simpler feature/suggestion/request.


When adjusting (using mouse select and drag)  a diagram's swimlane width all lanes to the right of the lane boundary shift as well.
This shift is in fact a side-effect, and we know these are bad.


I propose the following enhancements:
  • mouse select and drag with the Ctrl key depressed adjusts ONLY the selected boundary
  • mouse select and drag with the Shift key depressed adjusts all columns equally, i.e. they all expand or contract by the same distance
Throughts before I submit a feature request?

This is already there

Select a diagram swimlane and hold Alt Key, this only adjust the selected swimlane boundary leaving all others in place.
