Key Improvements of 7.7

EDG Diagram

In EDG Diagram we introduce six new features to enhance the diagramming capabilities of EDG.

Setting of default styling options

Users can override default styling options. This will allow users to  define and configure diagram settings for the default node colour theme, edge colour and thickness, and text color (outside of nodes). User specific settings will override default settings for that user on the specific configured diagram, and cannot be shared across different users, unless exported to one of the supported formats.

Automatic optimisation of edge routes on node movement

The layout is automatically optimised on node movement. This will ensure clarity in the diagram as soon as any movement happens.

Minimising the number of corners in connections

On movement within the diagram, a feature is implemented to ensure the minimum number of corners and bends in the diagram.

Introduction of the straight lines layout

The straight lines layout allow for the representation of complex graphs which are compact, no overlaps, and few crossings and bends. The routes of the edges consist of a sequence of alternating horizontal and vertical line segments. The diagram will also minimise the number of edge crossing and the number of bends.
