Help - Ladderizing

From TreeGraph help
Jump to: navigation, search

To ladderize a tree means sorting the nodes on one level by the count of their subnodes (on all levels under the node). It usually makes understanding the tree easier.

TreeGraph allows you to ladderize single subtrees by selecting their root node and clicking on Ladderzize up or Ladderize down in the format menu. It is possible to ladderize upward or downwards.

Examples

Ladderize up

Original (selected node is marked in red)
     →
Ladderized upwards

Ladderize tree down and subtree up

Original (selected node is marked in red)
     →
Ladderized downwards (selected node is marked in red)
     →
Subtree additionally ladderized upwards
