Automatical layout when opening or closing a group

0 votes
I didn't find a way to automatically "recalculate" the layout when I open or close a group.

But I have tested the graph demo of yFiles for Silverlight where it seems this feature exists (at least when closing a group inside another group, the parent group is resized)

So does the IncrementalHierarchicLayouter exists directly in yEd? Or is it planned to add such a functionnality?

The algorithm used in the Hierarchical Layout in yEd is the IncrementalHierarchicLayouter, it's simply not connected to the Open Group and Close Group commands.
I think I have made a mistake in the question talking about IncrementalHierarchicLayouter without knowing exactly what is its functionnality.
By the way, my actual question would be better to ask for an automatic layout launched at each action. Or better that we could start an automatic layout manually which could keep running in background. Or maybe add this function only in Navigation mode?
Ok, thanks for the clarification.
