We present a new network diagram authoring tool, Dunnart, that provides continuous network layout. It continuously adjusts the layout in response to user interaction, while still maintaining the layout style and, where reasonable, the current layout topology. The diagram author uses placement constraints, such as alignment and distribution, to tailor the layout style and can guide the layout by repositioning diagram components or rerouting connectors. The key to the flexibility of our approach is the use of topology-preserving constrained graph layout.
