XBW Designer Feature – “Arrange All”

I just fell across this feature in the SUP Hybrid Web Container designer (the XBW file designer).  It is Arrange All – I know we get this for free from GMF/GEF and it has been there for ages, but I never noticed it.  This solves one of those items I had on my whiteboard to investigate and address (in my copious spare time…).

Basically, right-mouse on the design surface and choose “Arrange All” in the context menu.  There is a smooth slide where the screen nodes move into (usually) pleasing positions.

First – the original flow designer….
