Move a combined fragment

To change the position of a combined fragment when in diagram edit mode

With the mouse

  1. Select the combined fragment
  2. LEFT-DRAG the combined fragment to where you want it to be
  3. Release the LEFT mouse button to drop it there (only the top edge is used to determine its new position)

With the keyboard

  1. Select the combined fragment
  2. Use the UP ARROW and DOWN ARROW keys to move it one time unit up or down the diagram

When you use the mouse you needn't worry about getting the drop location exactly right, as Trace Modeler lays out everything automatically. It will also ensure that the combined fragment correctly encloses the control flow and the targets that are active within it.
