Placement algorithm is insane

    I do think that FreeMind is Great Stuff. But the node placement algorithm makes me cry, pound the desk, drink undiluted Absolut Vodka etc.

    It happens rather often that I copy/past nodes. A side effect of this is that other nodes may suddenly shoot off into canvas up or down direction, in a way that even zooming out to 25% will not get the whole map back onto screen. And then it's nearly impossible to move the nodes back together again. Any movement on the lowermost nodes will cause the highermost nodes to move even further away, giving a good impression of an ever-expanding universe.

    Please tell me there is a button that say 'move nodes close together' or something.

    If not, I will try to take a look at the code... if I get the time, that is :-(
