I have a very large SSIS project using SQL Data Tools for development. When I try to group objects together and select all of them to be moved, the screen moves too fast which prevents placing the objects in a reasonable place. The screen usually scrolls all the way down to the bottom of the control surface making it almost impossible to re-arrange the items manually. If I have Data Tools auto-arrange, the constraints are all over the surface making the package unreadable.

Absolutely agree that the speed is too fast, that auto-arrange illogically scatters components and add that the zoom feature when moving objects is a bear, too.

Much attention is needed to this "surface" editor to make it a tool one doesn't live in dread of using with large packages. I have a 16-parallel task package where each of those tasks has three further tasks in its container - it has been ruined several times by the editor such that I don't dare move or re-size anything any more.

Please improve this, Microsoft, as it wastes our time immensely and Ctrl+Z isn't responsive, BTW, to dig us out of the hole...

+1 without reservation.
