Hi. I need to create a graph where there is a sequence of nodes 10, 20, 30, 40, 50 and each node depends on all predecessors. For example node 10 is a predecessor for 20, 30, 40 and 50. 20 is a predecessor for 30, 40 and 50. And so on. The result is shown in the picture. The dependency chain is shown correctly but because all links overlap the diagram is not readable.
I am currently using a TreeLayout and an AvoidsNodes routing, which works well in most cases but seems to fail here. I’ve been trying other layouts and routings as well, but could not get better results. (Best was a CircularLayout with normal links, the diagram is then readable in a graphical sense but the flow of the dependency chain is lost.)
My question is: is there some setting to make links avoid other links as well as nodes?
Or as an alternative: could you recommend some settings to render this diagram correctly?
