Description

If set to NONE the usual ordering strategy (by cumulative node priority and size of nodes) is used. INSIDE_PORT_SIDES orders the components with external ports only inside the groups with the same port side. FORCE_MODEL_ORDER enforces the mode order on components. This option might produce bad alignments and sub optimal drawings in terms of used area since the ordering should be respected.
