Manipulating the graph: Layouts
At the bottom right of the workspace there are controls allowing to "Zoom in", "Zoom out", and "Locate", i.e. center the screen on the current selection.
Run a layout
Using a layout on the graph brings clarity. To refresh the current layout, right-click on the background, or click on the "More" menu at the top of the workspace, and choose "Refresh layout" in the context menu.
To apply another layout, you can follow the same steps and choose "Layout settings", or you can do it by clicking on the layout setting icon on the right.
By default the layout is run automatically on the whole graph in some conditions, such as when an expand is performed. It is possible to switch to an "Incremental expand" mode in the Layout settings.
Note that "Incremental expand" and "Pin on drag" are user preferences which are going to be applied to all your visualizations.
This is the default layout, enabled in "fast mode" option. You may turn this option OFF for better looking but slower results.
The hierarchical layout organize nodes in different layers by aligning nodes of each layer vertically or horizontally. It produces a tree-like structure if there is a single root node (the node at the top of the tree):
You may choose a root node, by using the search or selecting a node from the graph and clicking "Set the selected node as the root node" button".
You may choose the orientation, for instance "Top to bottom" places the root node at the top.
Radial layouts position nodes around the currently selected node (used as center of the layout) based on their graph-theoretical distance (shortest path in the graph). This is useful for revealing layers in data and for drawing the rest of the graph in its relation to the pre-defined focus node.
You must choose a root node, by using the search or selecting a node from the graph and clicking "Set the selected node as the root node" button".
Note that you will not be able to apply the radial layout for visualizations with more than 1500 nodes.
