Required Settings

As UML Use Case was selected as the base element type for Value Stream, there is a default setting you need to change to allow you to resize Value Streams without a fixed aspect ratio.

Here are the instruction for changing that setting in EA v13:

1.Select Start[Workspace]Preferences from the ribbon menu.
2.In the Preferences window, select the Objects section on the left.
3.Check Allow elongated Use Cases and press OK.

You should now be able to resize Value Stream elements horizontally and vertically independent from one another.
