How to make your seating plan smaller

(Last Updated On: May 9, 2016)

Sometimes, it’s necessary to make a seating plan smaller. Maybe you’ve removed some seats in the theatre and don’t want to have a seating plan with a lot of blank space in it.

  • Start by making the status of each seat into an “x”.
  • We are taking out Row K in this example.
  • We right click the far left and far right seats and they turn into asterisks.
  • In the window that opens, click in the Status field, hold your left mouse button down and scroll right to highlight everything in that field, then delete and type in a lower case x.
  • Click the Apply the changes button.


  •  Go to Plan tools and click Delete records where status=’x’ to remove a row or column.
  • A new window will open and ask for the new width and length of the plan.  In this example, we are removing a row, so our new length is 12, instead of 13.


  • Wintix removes the seats.
