After you have inserted files into a Design window, you can arrange the file boxes on the design pane by dragging them to the desired location with the mouse. For designs containing a large number of files, the Overview window provides an overview so that you can see at a glance where in the design the visible part is located.
You can resize boxes by dragging box borders as well as expand or collapse them by clicking the expand button in the title bar of boxes.
Tree structures within boxes can be expanded and collapsed individually by clicking the plus and minus symbols to the left of tree entries. When you right-click an item in a file box, the context menu that appears (see screenshot below) provides commands to expand or collapse tree levels, and to size the file box to fit.
You can expand or collapse all children of the selected item, or expand or collapse the entire tree in which the selected item is. The Size to fit command resizes file boxes to show all visible items without the file box having any scrollbar.
