Activity diagrams experience an increasing importance in the design and description of software systems. Unfortunately, previous approaches for automatic layout support fail or are just insufficient to capture the complexity of the related requirements. We propose a new approach tailored to the needs of activity diagrams which combines the advantages of two fundamental layout concepts called "Sugiyama's approach" [Sugiyama et al. 1981] and "topology-shape-metrics approach" [Tamassia et al. 1988
more &raquo; ... ], originally developed for layered layouts of directed graphs and for orthogonal layout of undirected graphs respectively.
