Can large classes span rows?

I have an entity-relationship diagram with a lot of small entities, but a few really long ones. Because they all get laid out on rows, those rows end up really tall, and there is a lot of wasted space that makes the diagram hard to read. Is there a way to either change how the object are packed, or to tell a class to span across multiple rows?

For instance, in the diagram http://www.plantuml.com/plantuml/uml/NS_B4S8W58NX_Qc21kmXInUwqWQGO7BDvI4FDOgzE_XGnkNv1fYVBYOPKZQCE97rCaWZcAnEizV2XJGwGB6CKMoCP1Ott3-m9JktUqKfiMvbJPQYol-eWelAUL8jB_DGZqdieD13Ouy18mW7J60OM3Xu714GaP1nmXaNpBZMDvwtIrcKyivev5NUGYt_xWfDK-k_3w3Jji-67m00, it would be nice if `Huge` could span 3 rows, so that the three clases to the side of it could be stacked above each other.

Hello F.,

From:

For a possible workaournd, You can change the layout, (and the arrow), by:

left to right direction


[Code on PlantUML server]

But now we can observe issues on the other entities: Miniscule and Microscopic.... wink

If that can help,
