Please Excuse if covered in 3 already, but I'd like to have flexibility for how blocks are placed in a nested node ...

With VUE 3, you will have the capability of collapsing compound (i.e. nested) nodes. You can also arrange your nodes and links into different layers. Hope this helps!

I meant to refer to how nodes are placed inside a node ... the layout of them, not the connectivity.... at present, when you drop a node into another node, it is automatically placed at the bottom of a 'stack' of nodes in the nested node, and nodes need to be taken out, and replaced, to change the order, and there's just one 'stack' ... am I making any sense??

I see. Thank you for the suggestion. We will keep it in mind, although it is currently outside the scope of the May VUE 3 release.

By the way, did you know that you can reorder the nodes embedded within a node by selecting one of them and then using the arrow keys on your keyboard?

I second that wish. Could use that feature.

Nikolai, that is a very helpful tip! Is that in the documentation anywhere?

Hi Barry!

Try to group the layout before place it inside other node.

Group = Cmd+G / Ctrl+G or Format/Group
Ungroup = Cmd+Shift+G / Ctrl+Shift+G or Format/Ungroup

You can also edit the grouped "sub-map" by double clicking it.

+1 for alternative node children layout mechanisms. A handy change would be to add an option to each node allowing layout horizontally rather than vertically.

Thanks.

For me, the liberty in the layout of nested nodes would be very welcome.

THANK YOU! SO HELPFUL!
This could probably be in the [Format>Arrange] Menu

I don’t think I’ve never learned anything like this before. So good to see someone with some authentic thoughts on this subject
