Filter for drawing directed graphs.

Dot's trangles

We have a question regarding how dot treats the height and width fields of triangles. In particular when dot lays out a triangle (input.dot) it claims the dimensions are: width="0.75", height="0.68889" which is a width/height ratio of roughly 1.09. (See output.dot). When we ask dot to draw this triangle dot -Tpng output.dot -o output.png We see a triangle (output.png) that is 74 x 51, i.e. has a width to height ratio of roughly 1.45. How are we to interpret dot's width and height measurements so that our shapes coincide?

arrangement of specific nodes?

I'm having very good luck with dot and have been able to make nearly every graph that I need. I'm trying to duplicate this: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:ICS_Structure.PNG as faithfully as I can. What I have not been able to do is place the first 3 children right below "Incident Commander". They branch left and right. I can deal with everything else but not those three. Can someone give me a clue to solve this? Thanks!

Can we use graphviz to draw a figure with several steps?

I am wondering whether we could draw a figure with several steps.
Say, I want to draw Figure 3 in the paper http://ccr.sigcomm.org/online/files/p63-alfares.pdf. This figure is well constructed. However, graphviz does not know that. So the figure produced by graphviz is not that well as shown in the paper.

Enabling Visio Export on Windows

Hi everybody, I'm looking for a way to export Graphviz data into MS Visio. I tried .svg export, but that isn't really satisfying, as I want to edit a somewhat complex graph. Then I found that there is already a plugin available that lets Graphviz export data in .vdx format, but it appears to be disabled in the available binary versions of Graphviz for windows. So I spent a few hours trying to setup MinGW and build Graphviz locally with the option '--with-visio', but without any luck. Now I'm wondering why this option is not activated in the default build.

[dot] edge bend outside, not inside

Hi @all,

I have troble with the graph at the end of this post. There is an overlapping edge (the last colored one) which could be avoided easily.

How can I tell DOT to prefere drawing edges (nodes are in one line) below (without ports)?

Required is:
- no use of ports (e.g. "s" in this example)
- usage of the shown rank=same

Doesn't matter if:
- edges have to increase the size of the image (would be the case in my example)

Edge problems

I want to do something like the red mark in this pic. its possible? Thx

Wrong direction of edge in directed graph

I have a dot graph that should have edges from top to botttom. As soon as I use clusters it happens that edges are going the opposite direction. I attached the source and the rendered graph. Is this a bug? How can I modify the graph to ensure that all edges are going the right direction? Thanks Heiner

Dot Performance Issues

We use dot to layout biological pathways in a tool we developed here at Plugin <em></em> Not Found. Recently we have come up a significant performance issue, on certain graphs dot takes an inordinately long time to layout the graphs. Usually even for large graphs, dot is quite quick.
