I would like to know if you can add more than one box at a time to a projects. say 4 boxes at once. also the placement of the box parts are all over the place with a lot of wasted space yet you cant move them. is there a way to make it nest better?

If you use the dovetail option you can't nest or move from the original placement as a special toolpath is created. With square tabs you should be able to nest ok.

The intro page for the gadget on the gadget website explains the options available for moving things around.
