Hi,
I am using ELK layered algorithm to layout my Sirius diagram.
Environment:
Eclipse: Photon
Sirius: 6.0
ELK: 0.4.1
Model: family
Configurations:
Layout: ELK Layered in odesign file
Option: mergeEdges = true in Layered.melk
Add "Begin Label" and "End Label" for "fatherEdge" and "motherEdge" in odesign of family

This is my layout result on family diagram by clicking "Arrange All" button.
index.php/fa/34057/0/(see family_diagram.gif)
From this picture, we can see that some edges are overlapped with labels, edges or icons.
The another picture is my layout result on the same diagram by clicking ELK Layout button in the toolbar.
index.php/fa/34058/0/(see family_graph.gif)
From the picture, we can see that all the edge labels are well placed without overlapping.

I am confused, is it ELK's problem? Or is it connection problem between Sirius and ELK which causes this result?
Thanks in advance and hope for your reply.

Nicholas,

thanks for attaching both images, that helped a lot. The second image shows the direct output of ELK Layered. As you already remarked, it places all labels correctly. The problem must thus be with the connection between Sirius and ELK. Since we don't maintain that, this looks like an issue for the Sirius team.

Cheers,
Chris
