Once the seating plan is drafted, you can use the other editor features.

2. Zoom out - this will allow you to shrink the seating plan view
2. Grid - allows you to remove or show the grid (squares) in the seating plan background when editing (the grid will not display on your event page, this is purely to help you align your seating plan)
3. Fit Screen - adjusts the seating plan view to the screen
4. Reset - reverts the seating plan view to the default size
You can select multiple objects and move them at the same time. Press and hold the 'CTRL' button on your keyboard and click the object you want to select.
Setting up seat blocking options = (social distancing) - This feature will allow you to set the number of seats on either side of an order that you want to block automatically. If enabled, Once seats have been purchased the number of seats you set for blocking will automatically be unavailable for purchase on both sides of the order.
When you're done drafting your seating plan, you can choose to click the Save button to save the changes you made and once your seating plan is finalised and ready, you can click the Publish button. The publish button will also allow you to preview the seating plan on your event page.
Should you choose to unblock a seat that was blocked due to the seat blocking feature you set, you can simply unblock these seats from the seating plan.
Once the seating plan is published, you can also export a copy of your seating plan. This will generate a PDF copy of your seating plan
