3161063 - Reduce free space and Lane Names, Extra Edges in Editor Views


It appears that the Reduce free space function cannot compress free space when:

  • the lane has a name on top
  • when a line has extra edges because of removed elements


The Process Manager documentation: Modeling notations > What is BPMN? > Creating views states the following:

  • Reduce free space: Remove empty space that was occupied by elements not included in this view.

However, the functionality does not yet extend to lane names and extra edges, so this limitation has already been reported to our Product Managers.
If you are affected by this limitation and want to be kept up to date about this feature request, please create a ticket in the Signavio Support portal
reference this article.
