Hello, Is there any way to re-organize the visual of the network into a more readable format? Such as organizing the resources, tasks, agents and knowledge nodes into rows, swimlanes, or groups? (my network visual is attached)

Thanks,

Mahya

you can pin the nodes and then move them where you want

that's probably the best option for you 
  given the way a meta-network works

Hi Mahya,

One way to improve the overall legibility of Labels is "Node Appearance -> Label Style -> Draw Label Borders". Instead of drawing simple black text, that option will cause the labels to have white borders around the text. I should probably make that the default option...

The first thing I'd suggest is "Layouts -> Run Box Layout". This will put 1-4 Nodesets on each side of a 1-4 sided shape (circle, parallel lines, triangle, square). It can make seeing the connections between levels a bit hard though.

Another option I tend to like is "Layouts -> Run Circle Layout (Pendants to outside)". This will move all of the pendants to the outside, with everything one degree from a pendant one ring in, and so on, and so on.

Thank you. These are very helpful ways to do it. The only thing that is different in my ORA is that, I don't have "Draw Label Borders". (please see attached. maybe m ORA version is old (ORA-lite 2.3.2)
Thanks
