    Cannot move components on diagram?


      I've been using Java DSL with Camel for a while and now I need to transition to Spring DSL. At the same time I thought it would be a good idea to use the FID to build my routes.


      I have encountered one major obstacle though: When a component (pattern/endpoint/processor) has been placed on the canvas it cannot be moved. I am wondering: Is this a missing feature or is there some way to do this?


      I would think this is a show stopper in many cases because if you wish to redesign your route, you would have to start over every time you need to move a component placed in the middle of a pipeline.


      Any help?

          It depends on what you mean by 'moved'. If you mean changing the layout (positioning on screen), then you cannot move it, because the tool is designed to auto-layout the pipeline. This is a feature. Similarly, there isn't a lot of flexibility in terms of 'picking up' a component and dropping it elsewhere in the pipeline. It's been a while since I used the tool, but I think it is possible to drop new components 'in front of' the target component on the pipeline, which will allow you build around the existing one.

            I have an idea! Thanks!
