Summary0002134: rendering or even opening attached .gv file instantly crashes gvedit.exe (attachment)
DescriptionThe line

     subgraph { rank=same j k b c d;}

was the last thing added, and it is causing the crash. Source attached, and output without the above line attached for reference.

I was trying to figure out how to get the Objection#3 node to the left of its parent rather than underneath it, so the pic wouldn't be so wide.
Steps To Reproducegraph {
    node [shape=box, style=rounded] ;

    a [root, label="Harvesting the Little Sisters is evil."];

    subgraph cluster_reason0 {
        label="Objection 0000003";
        style="filled, rounded";
        node [style="filled, rounded", shape=box, color="#eeeeee"];
        j [label="Harvesting \ncauses pain."];
        k [label="Mere pain\n is not harm."];

    subgraph cluster_reason1 {
        style="filled, rounded";
        node [style="filled, rounded", shape=box, color="#eeeeee"];
        b [label="Harvesting \ndoes harm."];
        c [label="Harming\n people\n is evil."];
        d [label="The Little\n Sisters\n are people."];

    subgraph { rank=same j k b c d;}

    subgraph cluster_reason2 {
        label="Objection 0000001";
        style="filled, rounded";
        node [style="filled, rounded", shape=box, color="#eeeeee"];
        e [label="Harvesting\n energy\n helps me."];
        f [label="I help \npeople."];
        g [label="Helping\n people\n is good."];

    subgraph cluster_reason3 {
        label="Objection 0000002";
        style="filled, rounded";
        node [style="filled, rounded", shape=box, color="#eeeeee"];
        h [label="The Little\n Sisters are\n zombies."];
        i [label="Zombies\n are not\n people\n anymore."];

    edge [dir=forward, fontsize=8, penwidth=2, color=crimson, fontcolor=crimson ]
    b -- e [label=" no, because", lhead=cluster_reason2];
    d -- h [label=" no, because", lhead=cluster_reason3];
    b -- j [label=" no, because", lhead=cluster_reason0];
    a -- c [color=forestgreen, fontcolor=forestgreen, label=" yes, because", lhead=cluster_reason1];

This is actually a bug in dot. Dot crashes on the file, so GVedit can't display
the outcome.

As a workaround, remove the rank=same subgraph and add the edge

a -- j [style=invis]

and add the attribute constraint=false to b -- j.

By the way, you might want to work explicitly with a directed graph as that seems to be what you are relying on.

Ah, thank you. I'm still learning what "rank" and such means.

This bug in dot appears to be related to giving subgraphs names with or without clustering.

was working on a large graph and encountered the issue. Removing the name resolved the issue for me.

On OS X 10.9 Mavericks, Graphviz 2.34 gives an alert:
    The document "graphviz bug 2134.gv" could not be opened.
without any further explanation.

I'm not quite sure what the above remark means. What is the document "graphviz bug 2134.gv" and how are you trying to open it? I should note that the input graph ArgumentMap6.gv is illegal: one needs to remove "root," from the attribute list of node a.
