This tool places the nodes of the given layout on automatically determined horizontal and/or vertical lines. It can be used to automatically snap nodes to the same x- or y-coordinates to obtain a grid-like structure. When rearranging the layout, it moves the nodes as little as possible.
Specifies the axis, parallel to which the nodes are aligned by the algorithm.
- Snap Both
- Specifies that nodes are aligned both horizontally and vertically.
- Snap Horizontally
- Specifies that nodes are aligned horizontally.
- Snap Vertically
- Specifies that nodes are aligned vertically.
Minimum Node Distance
Specifies the minimum horizontal and vertical distance between two nodes.
Maximum Snapping Distance
Specifies the maximum distance between two nodes that can be aligned on the same line. The distance is measured between the centers of the nodes in the input layout. Further, for vertical alignment it refers to the horizontal distance between the nodes and for horizontal alignment it refers to the vertical distance between the nodes.
Specifies whether nodes are placed in strictly separated rows and strictly separated columns.
Consider Node Labels
Specifies whether node labels are taken into account when snapping nodes on common lines.
Specifies the distance between two adjacent grid lines to which the nodes can be snapped or zero if nodes are aligned on an irregular grid.
