Compact layout option between auto-layout and manual
Auto layout is cool but wastes a LOT of whitespace.
Manual layout is handy for utilising that wasted space and is useful for creating meaningful distance between parents and siblings e.g. this node is related but distant - but gets messy quickly because suddenly every other node pretends the manually positioned node no longer exists and just closes up the gap, with captions overlying lines.
I would like the ability to manually move a node (see Child 2) but ensure the other auto-aligned nodes won't overlay the line (like in second diagram), so basically still auto aligning to make space for the line (like in third diagram).
+1 This is a great idea, agreed!
It's great to have a simple "mind map" auto-alignment option, but only having this single option is a bit too broad for my taste.1
Thanks for the excellent and clear suggestion, @NathanaelCBR. I'm also a fan of this - I agree that there is certainly lot of potential in expanding the auto-layout options we have available. I'll make sure to flag this post for our product team!1
Great explanation of your feature request @NathanaelCBR 🌟 You've got my vote too ⬆
This will be a great improvement when it gets implemented.
