Change the layout of an organization chart

As you add shapes to an organization chart, the chart rearranges itself to ensure that each element is laid out in a standard manner. This is because, by default, an organization chart has AutoLayout enabled.

  • To enable or disable AutoLayout, choose Layout → AutoLayout.

Once AutoLayout is disabled, you can move or resize shapes and connectors.

While AutoLayout is enabled, you cannot move or resize any element.
