You can quickly place multiple objects of the same type in the modeling area.
1. Click on an object in the modeling toolbar. If you have not selected an object in the model (quick modeling), continue with the next step.
2. Select a connection type if necessary. If you decide to use the connection type suggested, continue with the next step.
3. Hold down the Ctrl key.
4. Click on the positions where you want to place the object one after the other.
5. Release the Ctrl key.
6. Click on the objects one after the other and press F2.

A new object definition is created for each object occurrence.
Where you place the first object determines where connections will be attached to the target objects. If you place objects above the source object, connections will be attached to the bottom of the target objects; if you place objects below the source object, connections will be attached to the top of the target objects. The same procedure is followed with right and left placements.
You want to place five organizational units to the right of a function. Place the first organizational unit to the right of the function and then place the remaining organizational units above and to the right, and below and to the right of the function.
