Hello Z.,

Awaiting the beta-style margin/padding for component and deployment, two possible workarounds are:

1/ We can change font size, as:

root {
  FontSize 25
arrow {
  FontSize 25
  Padding 50
  Margin 50

2/ Or, We can just add horizontal tabulation (‘\t’), as:

component B
component C
B  "D" -right->  "U"  C : \tshared kernel\t\t


If that can help,
