Papyrus/Photon Work Description/Usability/ELK

The Eclipse Layout Kernel (ELK) implements an infrastructure to connect diagram editors or viewers to automatic layout algorithms. It also implements a number of standard layout algorithms ready to be used out of the box.


Global representation

There should be a way to set a standard layout for diagrams during their creation or after they are imported. For this, ELK seemed a good solution as it allows the user to set its own layouts or get one provided through Papyrus and use it out of the box.
