Outline order is reversed Thread Tools Search this Thread Display Modes
I have used the outline feature to create a org chart / flow chart to map out some work that I am doing. However, the layout is reversed (bottom to top) from the my outline order.

I can't find any option that changes this behaviour. Can someone else help ?

I am using OG5 beta 2, but i get the same thing in version 4.2.
Check the direction in the Diagram Layout Inspector, you should be able to change the settings there.
"Vroom! Vroom!!"
Regardless of whether I choose vertical top to bottom, or bottom to top, or horizontal (which is what I want) the layout is the inverse of the Outline.

Thus my outline shows 1 2 3 4, but the diagram is ALWAYS 4 3 2 1.

bang! bang! bang! ( head on desk)
I have worked with this some more . If i set the layout to 'normal' or default is works OK, but when I use the settings as shown in the attached graphic, the flow is reversed.

I am setting the flow from right to left.

Yep, this is a bug, and it has been here for ages. If you set the diagram layout "Direction" to left-to right, or light to left (and save it as new diagram layout), then the outline elements

show as


in the diagram. Most annoying.

EDIT: this apparently affects only first (root) level in the outline.
