|Containing Group:||nodePlacement -> bk|
Specifies whether the Brandes Koepf node placer tries to increase the number of straight edges at the expense of diagram size. There is a subtle difference to the ‘favorStraightEdges’ option, which decides whether a balanced placement of the nodes is desired, or not. In bk terms this means combining the four alignments into a single balanced one, or not. This option on the other hand tries to straighten additional edges during the creation of each of the four alignments.
