KeyLines 7.2 and ReGraph 4.2, the latest versions of our graph visualization toolkits, are available now.
The big news is that the rectangular combos functionality is out of beta development and is now a fully-fledged part of the SDKs. We’ve also improved the customization options for both rectangular and circular combos, so users get exactly the grouping arrangements they want in their complex networks.
Rectangular combos move to general availability
Our smart node grouping functionality ‘combos’ help analysts reduce chart clutter, simplify complex networks and make busy visualizations easier to manage. Rectangular combos offer the perfect option when chart space is limited, especially combined with compact grid arrangements.
While rectangular combos were in beta development, we gathered user feedback to keep improving and updating them, putting each change through a rigorous testing process. They’re now a fully established component of the toolkits.
Take a closer look at rectangular combos in KeyLines’s Arranging IT Networks demo or ReGraph’s Rectangular Combos story.
Further combo customization
If you’re using rectangular or circular combos, you’re probably keen to manage the space they take up in your charts. Now you can go one stage further and tighten up nodes inside combos where space is limited, or spread out nodes to make analysis clearer.
You’ll also see subtle but effective improvements to tightness options in our structural and sequential layouts.
Try out the tightness option in the Grid Arrange and Combo Tightness stories in ReGraph, or the Combo Options and Arranging IT Networks demos in KeyLines.
