I’m new to Graphviz and dot. It seems ideal to separate content from presentation.
I would like to lay out a graph like this (created in OmniGraffle):
Graphviz/dot has it’s own opinion about this, and does this (sorry, I had to pixelate the text):
Is there a way to convince the layout engine that a certain line of items should be vertical, and other items would be adornments connected to those central items? (I did try
weight=n, but it didn’t work consistently.)
