Aligning elements

Modelio diagrams provide several different alignment possibilities.

Using the “Snap to geometry” option

In the diagram’s Properties or Symbol view it is possible to activate/deactivate the ‘Snap to geometry' option. This feature allows to snap elements to other figures centers and edges when creating or moving them.
