Is it possible to disabe automatic port spacing in System Composer design? In some cases it would be useful to manually adjust ports into groups on component edge. For example port 1 and port 2 would be close to each others, but port 3 would have a longer distance to port 2 on the same edge of a component. That would clarify the design.

Hey there,
Port spacing is not manually adjustable in System Composer but there are workarounds like putting one component into a wrapper component and then grouping signals into interfaces using either dot notation or the interface adapter.
Here's some help on how to create and use interfaces:
Here' some help on using the interface adapter:
And here's an example showing dot notation:
Hope this helps,

Thank you for your help. This solves partly my problem. However, it would be very nice feature to adjust also port placements to make the diagram easier to read. For example for avoiding unnecessary angles in the connections and also make visual groupping.
