Default Can I disable auto adjustment of sizes in Smart art Hierarchy charts?

Right now I am creating a very complex hierarchy chart which involves a lot of shifting around of text and sizes within my chart. Every time I go to re-size a cell, it auto adjusts the sizes of cells on the whole slide and changes their position. Is there a capability to turning this function off?



Below is the kind of thing I'm working with.



Any time I adjust the size of these cells it moves everything around it a tad and resizes them. Any ideas on how to disable that auto adjustment function?

Thank you

Smart Art templates are built in XML and include "rules" on what happens when you move, add, resize etc. The user cannot access that XML so there's no way to turn off the autoformat. It is POSSIBLE to write your own template in XML as a .Glox file but there is a VERY steep learning curve which for most users makes it impossible.
