Issue Details

I'm dragging variables in my case structures. As soon as I drag it in, the case structure explodes and expands to where the code is not manageable. How do I disable the auto resizing of the structure?


In order to turn off auto resizing for the entire VI, you can go to Tools -> Options -> Block Diagram -> Place Structures with Auto Grow enabled.

If you only want to turn off resizing for a specific structure, you can right click on the structure itself and turn off Auto Grow.
