e!Sankey 2.0: more options for arrow heads & spikes
« on: July 15, 2008, 02:55 PM »
The new versions e!Sankey 2.0 and 2.0 pro now have more possibilities to present arrow heads.

In contrast to the previous version, several arrows arriving at a process will now merge and form a joint arrow head.

Arrow heads can have explicit arrow spikes. The following sample shows a simple and a joint arrow head, both with arrow spikes (option: "Always show arrow spikes")

In the next image, the thin Sankey arrow has an arrow spike, while the wide arrow shows no spike (option: "Show spike for arrows up to" which allows entering of a threshold in pixels). This feature can be used to give very narrow arrows more emphasis.

Without explicit arrwo spikes:

Width of basis of arrow head can be set:

Angle of arrow head and arrow tail can be set. This option works for arrows with or withour spike heads.
