The erwin user reverse engineers a huge database and breaks down their model into smaller subsets using the subject areas. Their subject area still has ~ 300 or more tables in it. They pick a plotter sized paper like A3 and presses the circular layout (as an example). They find the entities have long relationships and they would like to scrunch the objects closer together and shorten the relationship line lengths so the entities are not as far spread out.
A functionality that would automatically scrunch objects closer together or widen them further apart while keeping the layout (e.g. circular) is desirable. Perhaps also add a length specifier.
