Sorry for the delay, forgot to subscribe to this topic. Now I am subscribed.
At first at the Layout View Panel
you need to select Layout Algorithm (Layout Algorithm property)
List of Properties are dependend from selectec algorithm
More over there is an toobalr command on the Layout Panel “Show Advanced Properties”
When pressed all propeties are shown.
You will find many new properties after that.
To set the property for diagram you need to click on some empty space on diagram.
After that diagram properties will be shown on Layout View.
You can set different layout properties for each diagram element,
selecting it and change propeties on Layout Panel.
Most of the time I use
- Architecture Blank diagrams
- Layout Hierarchy: true
- Node Spacing set to greater value
By default algorithm ELK Layered is used.
I use this algorithm for all diagrams with “Arachitecture Blank” type.
You need to set the property “Layout Hierarchy” to true
Architecture Blank diagrams show elements with several levels.
When Layout Hierarchy set to true algorithm is used for all levels correctly.
Property “Node Spacing” change distance between nodes. When you want to show Component/Function exchange names
this propery is useful.
I need to find property that influence size selection of the nodes.
In some cases I need to make size of component/functions larger by hand,
so there is enough place for all ports placement.
- Breakdown diagrams
I use these properties
- Merge Edges
The Direction property change hierarchy direction on diagram.
For these diagrams I use advanced Property “Merge Edges”.
When set to true input/output edges to the diagram element are merged to an one edge.
Without this property you have
With this property set you have
I will update this information if I will find additional useful properties in the future.
