I know many of the layouts in Tikz can be rotated, but I fail to do it with the Layered Layout.

I have a very large chart that takes a lot of space horisontally, and i believe it would look better vertically.

I don't just want to rotate the model as i want to be able to read the label of every item.

(Sorry, I know the code is not very minimal)

  • Does adding grow=right, components go down left aligned to the \graph options produce the required output? – Mark Wibrow Sep 8 '17 at 13:15
  • It kinda works, although it places the 2 charts besides each other (the one i use as a legend, and the big one). I guess i will try to make it with just one. – Nichlas H. Sep 13 '17 at 11:20
