How to do an Organizational Chart

0 votes


Hi I'm trying to use automatic layouts to make my file look like the image.http://yed.yworks.com/support/qa/?qa=blob&qa_blobid=12880978120254169418

I have tried the hierarchical layout, with no luck. Maybe using constraints or something?

Well, I would guess the diagram you linked to was created using a semi-automatic approach:

1. Run hierarchical layout with default settings except for "Routing Style" on tab "Edges" set to "Orthogonal".

2. Manually adjust node positions where you do not like yEd's positioning choice. It is not necessary to create pixel perfect placement for manual adjustments.

3. Run hierarchical layout once again with "Use Drawing As Sketch" on tab "General" enabled.
