Disable Auto-Adjust for Mind Maps


Whenever I add a new item to a mind map (by hitting Tab), other items get shuffled around from where I had them. Is there a way to disable this?

To be clear, I'm not referring to the "Auto Layout" button you can choose to click. But instead the fact that items get slightly moved whenever you Tab to add a new item.

Hi Marcio,

Thanks for reaching out in the community. The shapes moving when you add a new shape by clicking tab is to ensure that there is appropriate spacing throughout the document.
