To select a map layout, expand Map Layouts from the left options bar and click the option you want to see. The map layout options are described below:

  • Radial: Nodes are arranged on concentric circles around core devices.
  • Symmetrical: Nodes are arranged on concentric circles using uniform connection lengths. This option is very similar to the radial layout option.
  • Orthogonal: Device connections are vertical and horizontal only.
  • Layered: Nodes are arranged orthogonally and sorted by map object type such as multiple connections (core) or single connection (leaf) devices.

Use the option that best fits your preference or mapping standards.

With Align options you can align selected nodes left, right, top, bottom, and center them vertically or horizontally. With Distribute options you can arrange selected nodes with respect to each other either horizontally or vertically.
