Org charts - is is possible to 'nest' parts of an org chart?

so typically the layouts either allow you horizontal dispersion, with subordinates beneath.


is there a way to manually drag individuals to a different layout, so as to better fit them on  apage ?  such as if my top layer has 4 managers, and while 3 ofthem have 2 employees with zero subordinates, one has 5 employees and each has multiple subs...


so i'd like to take the odball and set him differently so the others 'nest' off to the side but below his, so as to not use a huge amount of space...

Hi Dave,

Thanks for posting in the Lucidchart Community! I'm sorry for the trouble, but I am happy to help. You can accomplish this by first clicking out of the org chart on your canvas. You will know you have exited the org chart when the left org chart editing panel disappears. Then, drag and drop this org chart icon to your canvas:

This will create a new org chart on your document, which you can place anywhere you'd like. Please let me know if you have additional questions!
