Force Node Model Order

Property Value
Identifier: org.eclipse.elk.layered.crossingMinimization.forceNodeModelOrder
Meta Data Provider: options.LayeredMetaDataProvider
Value Type: boolean
Default Value: false (as defined in org.eclipse.elk.layered)
Applies To: parents
Containing Group: crossingMinimization


The node order given by the model does not change to produce a better layout. E.g. if node A is before node B in the model this is not changed during crossing minimization. This assumes that the node model order is already respected before crossing minimization. This can be achieved by setting considerModelOrder.strategy to NODES_AND_EDGES.
