• Box—Nodes are resized according to the number and position of their neighbors to reduce the overall number of bends.
  • Fixed Box—Similar to Box but retains original entity sizes.
  • Mixed—Resembles Box but resizes all entities to equal size. Introduces additional bends and routes the last relationship segment of these relationships non-orthogonally to their adjacent entities.
  • Fixed Mixed—Similar to Mixed but retains original entity sizes.
  • Normal (default)—Node sizes will not be changed by this layout. The drawing will contain very few bends.
  • Normal Tree—Similar to Normal but larger subtrees are processed using a specialized tree layout algorithm, which is better suited for tree-like structures than the original orthogonal layout style.
  • Uniform—All entity sizes will be changed to equal size before the model is processed.
