More than one Layout Format in a graph?

0 votes

Hi All,

I'm just wondering if it's possible to have more than one layout in a single graph.

What I'm trying to achieve is a top-down tree with sub-elements that contain left-right trees.  Ideally I want these to be collapsable groups.

Does anyone have  a guide or tips on how to do this?

Some Layout wizards have a "Act on Selection Only" option, and other don't.

Circular, Directed Trees and Ballon Tree have it

would be nice to have it on every wizard.

Group each sub-element and the nodes that make up its left-right tree.

Select the group, choose Grouping, and View Group Content.  You can also Press Alt+Page Down or simply double-click on the group background.  This hoists the group so that only the contents of the group are in the workspace.

Apply your preferred left-right layout.

Choose Grouping, Previous View (or Alt+Page Up) to return to the full view.

Repeat this for each of your groups.  When complete, close each of the groups and apply your preferred top-down layout.  You may need to resize the closed groups before applying the top-down layout to leave enough room.  The layout will not apply to the contents of the closed groups.

Open one or more of the closed groups to see the left-right content.
