Whether to activate partitioned layout. This will allow to group nodes through the Layout Partition option. a pair of nodes with different partition indices is then placed such that the node with lower index is placed to the left of the other node (with left-to-right layout direction). Depending on the layout algorithm, this may only be guaranteed to work if all nodes have a layout partition configured, or at least if edges that cross partitions are not part of a partition-crossing cycle.
