When extending my flows with new nodes I often have to move all nodes below it to make space for those new nodes. For this I need to zoom out so that I can select all nodes below it and then move them all at once a bit lower on the canvas. After that I zoom in again so that I can position my new nodes on the free space.
I am just wondering if there is not a more easy way to do so ?
Is there not a short cut that allows me to move all nodes below my cursor a few pixels (like you press enter in a text editor) ?
An alternative is that I can easily select all nodes below my cursor (without the need to zoom out).
FYI here an example of such big flow diagram where this feature would become handy.
I agree - but I was clarifying (for you and future readers) it can be done.
I agree it would be useful to select all nodes "below" or "above" or "to the right" etc however this is just one of those annoying but mostly infrequent tasks you just have to get on with (i.e. not certain the effort is worth the benefit)
I suppose you could also (without zooming out quite so far) - select all - move all down - knowing that unseen ones will also move - then re-select just the top ones instead and move them back up to create space.
