Bin Packing Options Group

 
The Bin Packing Options group of the Ribbon Bar provides the functionality to set the object order and maximum horizontal or vertical size.
 
The Size value sets the maximum width of the diagram in the Horizontal layout or the maximum length of the diagram in the Vertical layout. In the Horizontal layout, shapes are arranged from left to right until the Size value is reached, and then shapes are placed on a new row. In the Vertical layout, shapes are arranged from top to bottom until the Size value is reached, and then shapes are placed on a new column.
 
Because the Bin Packer layout tries to arrange the objects in a square to minimize space, you may not notice a difference between Horizontal or Vertical layout if the size values are too high for the data.
 
You can also select a Sort option from the pull-down menu: None, By Name, Smallest First, Largest First. This will change the order of how the shapes are laid out.
 
The Horizontal layout was used in the following screenshots.
