Hello i have a question on customizing behaviour of the "Arrange All" function.
Normally all the nodes in are arranged "Bottom-up" as shown in the picture i appended.

Can i change this to a "Top-Down" Orientation quickly , without writing new layouts etc. ?

I think this is a typical use-case so it would be great if it can be fixed quickly.

Greetings

Hello,

I don't know exactly how to do this, but you can have a look to method
org.eclipse.gmf.runtime.diagram.ui.providers.internal.DefaultProvider.layoutTopDown(ConnectionEditPart)
that handles this functionality.

Regards,

Laurent

This is what this function did :

protected boolean layoutTopDown(ConnectionEditPart poly) {
return false;
}


So i think you are wrong.

Found it!

Add the following extension to plugin.xml (of the generated GMF diagram project).
<extension point="org.eclipse.gmf.runtime.diagram.ui.layoutProviders">
<?gmfgen generated="false"?>
 <layoutProvider class="org.eclipse.gmf.runtime.diagram.ui.providers.TopDownProvider">
  <Priority name="High"></Priority>
 </layoutProvider>
</extension>
