I was looking to see if there was already a suggestion for this, but didn't find it.  If there is, sorry for the duplicate.

I really find Flying Logic easy to use to create trees.  The trees are usually large and I find it very difficult to see a big picture of the tree.  I think one of the problems is that the arrows are often very long.  I feel as though there is a lot of empty space between the entities and if that could be reduce, either by default or as a feature to make things more compact, it would make it easier to see the whole thing in a small space. 

I've attached an example.  It seems to me columns could be much closer.  And if they were, a lot more could fit on the screen to get a better overall view.  And thus make it easier and faster to check the logic and improve the diagram.

Hi,

The problem you raise is one I have been struggling with as well. See, for example, the following discussions:

http://forum.flyinglogic.com/index.php?topic=384.0

http://forum.flyinglogic.com/index.php?topic=359.0

Good for you to raise the point again. From what I remember, for the moment the solution rests in using groups and hoisting them. I can manage with that. But rolling up or folding entities would still be a great feature, I believe. Also having access to a large printer is worth a lot. Personally I prefer to review diagrams from paper.

Cheers - Jan Wybe.
