About Manual Layout settings

In manual layout mode, the automatic layout methods are turned off and you are given complete control over device placement on the topology map. The topology maps provide a drag-and-drop capability to simplify creating and arranging a custom topology map. The following is a list of drag-and-drop operations in manual layout mode.

You can use the manual layout mode to add new devices to the topology map. The method to add a device is the same as adding a device in radial or hierarchical layout mode. After the devices are placed on the topology map, you can manually move devices on the map or select the radial or hierarchy layout settings to readjust the map.
