    I just started setting up my FSM and immediately I’m noticing the connection lines are difficult to read. The text boxes overlap one another so I’m forced to the move nodes further away and it’s difficult to tell which lines are connected to what node. The other 3 styles are all similar and have the same issues. Are there other styles or settings that I can try? Or is there way to only see the connections for the selected node? Or a way to adjusted the lines?

    Thank you.


    Hello there and welcome!

    All styles are designed to work best with a diagonal arrangement of nodes with outputs are always on the sides and inputs on the top/bottom (the styles are only changing how “soft” the connection lines are). It is true that in FSMs (in general) connections may often overlap each other, however after fiddling with a lot of ideas throughout numerous internal and public versions, the diagonal approach was the best one. I suggest to please try placing the nodes in a diagonal manner (like in the example demo and the screenshots) rather than placing nodes directly on the side or top/bottom of other nodes and by doing so the connections will flow better.

    Let me know if this helps 🙂
