Dear VUE Team
I'm Using VUE 3.0 beta-4b2 (btw: I love your naming conventions ; - ) ... Dec 15 2009 build 1306
on Windows Vista 64bit
but I think this behaviour is also present on Linux/Ubuntu and is also present in older version. But I thought I might drop some informations here to better understand if this is a bug or a feature.
Somehow I'm not able to attach images into this forum posts. so uploaded them on an external server:
base situation: vue_distorted_arrangement_01.png
if I drop a new image into the map and I drop it to close to existing nodes the layout / spacing is altered
I overlayed the screenshot in Photoshop (with multiply composition)
When I drop the new red image just a little bit further away from the existing blue one, the layout is not touched
This behaviour is even more drastic when the new image is dropped into the middle of existing nodes
Again I overlayed the screenshot in Photoshop (with multiply composition)
some context: I one of our files we use VUE as some kind of "light table" and dropping in new "slides" destroys the layout. As you can see the arrangement layout of the "slides" is a very important information in this setup
So they are two ways we deal with this:
* after a few hours we rearrange the gaps manually by hand ... tedious!
* we drop the new images-nodes on the very corner of the map and then with a lot of scrolling and zooming bringing them back into the middle ... not intuitive
is there a smarter way to deal with this? Is it a bug or a feature?
