I tried to split up the editor in 2 areas/subgraphs as parents for the
trigger and actions. The CompoundDirectedGraphLayout is made on a
main-subgraph where the 2 subgraphs are embedded.

The problem I have is that the auto-layout is allways constrained
on the whole editor. So the top-ranked-actions are placed behind the
trigger-area and not shown because they are child of the action-area.
When I assign the CompoundDirectedGraphLayout to the action-area I get
the same result.
So is there a way to set the constrains for the layout to a special
area/subgraph? Or maybe for single nodes/figures with the

I tried to balance the vertical placement of the nodes myself after the
auto-layout has been made but I am not very happy with it and I also get
some problms with the connection-routing.

I hope you can help me!
