Layout Network Nodes¶
The layout network nodes tool will try to organize the nodes of the network using the algorithm preferred by the user. Layout network nodes can be accessed by selecting the corresponding item of the Network Menu.
The internal algorithm of the HUGIN Graphical User Interface assumes the network as a certain type of structure. This implies that if a network does not have the assumed structure, then the algorithm may produce an organization of the nodes, which seems suboptimal.
If the user has install Dot (Graphviz - open source graph visualization software) on her computer, then she may configure the HUGIN Graphical User Interface to use Dot instead of the internal algorithm. The automatic layout algorithm is configured in Network Preferences.
