Customizing graph layout

Each node has a title bar with title buttons. The title bar can be used to displace the node. Displacing nodes or edges creates a custom layout. The custom layouts are automatically saved in the database. If there is a custom layout for the function, IDA never destroys it without your explicit permission. This behavior has its drawbacks: when the nodes are resized (because of added comments, for example), the old layout will be retained and the nodes could overlap. In this case, the user can ask IDA to redo the layout or manually move the overlapping nodes. To avoid displacing nodes inadvertently, turn on the lock graph layout option.

The user can also click on the edge layout points (edge bending points) and drag them. If two edge layout points are too close, one of them will be deleted. To create new edge layout points, use Shift-DoubleClick on the edge.
