In addition to “Make Tree” and “DAG layout”, there is now a function called “Make Circle”. It takes a complex graph and sets aside the simpler patterns such as trees and chains, and arranges the remaining core nodes into a circle where any node can be connected to any other node. The result is much less cluttered,
and the related items are closer to each other — which makes it easier to detect new relevant connections! To see for yourself, you can manipulate the before and after version in the web demo, or watch a video on YouTube. (It is a genuine map from my desktop, anonymized by xxxs.)
The video also shows the other new function which is available when you rightclick an icon: “Tree Layout”. It tries to find all hierarchically connected neighbor icons and format their subtree, or it highlights a cyclic path if a subtree cannot be found.
Note that currently, these functions are only available in the Java versions, not in the MSI, DMG, or Web Demo versions.
