Things We Saw(ed)
- Label-Edge Overlaps are currently being fixed. Link to Ticket!
- Spline self-loops with labels may be one possible topic for a master's thesis.
- Labels are not necessarily in the center of edges. Horizontal compaction might be a solution, but that assumes edges to be routed orthogonally. Adapting that to splines might be hard and result in O-NOs. uru might take a look at that, but it's nothing that a student can do.
- Port-based routing with splines looks very rigid and forced with ELK Layered. Dot produces a much more "organic" layout. We already talked about this topic, and it is listed on our topics page. A good idea would be to wait for the end of amf's thesis, because her results might be something to build on. We should talk about it again then.
- ssm likes Dot's vertical positioning of nodes more than the strict positioning that ELK Layered produces. The vertical coordinates of nodes is a function of which node placement algorithm is used. Dot's algorithm, Network Simplex, is also available in ELK Layered and could be tried.
- It would be interesting to try to layout SCCharts with completely different layout methods geared especially towards SCCharts. That might be an interesting topic for a thesis.
- Of course, even if a new method seems promising, it will take a while for it to have enough features to be usable to SCCharts.
- An alternative would be for labels to be put into "explicit" dummy nodes. This is something cds will try as soon as he gets around to the appropriate section in his thesis. - KIPRA-1353Getting issue details... STATUS
- It would be nice to be able to configure label management to be more flexible. For example:
- Shorten labels not to a specific threshold, but to, for example, 15% of their original width (or the threshold value, whatever is longer)
