What does "Inflate regions of found blocks" means and when it should be used


When opening the properties of a Blocks section, we may see the Inflate regions of found blocks option. What is this option and when it should be used?



The option Inflate regions of found blocks is used when we want to enlarge the region of all blocks, regardless of their source elements. It means that whichever region source elements are having, the blocks' region will become bigger.

To inflate blocks' regions, change the default number to a bigger number, depending on how much you want to enlarge your blocks. The numbers are measured in points.
