I’m using AlignedLayeredDigraphLayout (custom layout that i found on this forum) that works great with alligning all the nodes to the left.
however, i would like to also vertically center the nodes.
this is how it looks now:
I’m not sure what’s going on. Normally LayeredDigraphLayout does center-align nodes in adjacent layers if they are connected, although it snaps nodes to the grid established by the columnSpacing property so they might not be exactly centered.
I’m not sure that the layout recognizes that there is an unnecessary crossing of links there, because some of the links connect with a member node, but one connects with the group. That latter link might have been routed more towards the bottom of the group, in which case there would be no link crossing – yet the nodes on the left would not have changed order at all.
