How to manually place nodes and then auto-layout edges only?

0 votes
I have a complicated diagram with 32 nodes and 75 edges.  The structure and order of the nodes is important, as my graph intends to show a logical flow of human behavior.

Ideally, I want to manually move all the nodes in my graph, anchor them, and then run some auto-layout function that organizes ONLY the edges and their labels, but not any of the nodes.

Is this possible with yEd?

Yes, this is already possible in yEd. "Layout" -> "Edge Routing" offers several algorithms that route only edges (as the name implies).
