Tips & Tricks: Prefer a larger initial node size?

Influence diagrams look clearer when most nodes are the same size. Nodes with long titles expand automatically to fit the text — but this can make them seem spuriously more important. If you find you have many nodes of different sizes, it’s a good idea to expand the default node size for the whole model. Then most of your nodes will work in the standard size.

To expand the default nodes size, show the diagram for your top-level model, and select* Set Diagram Style…* from the *Diagram* menu. Drag the black square handle for the default node — say to 148×48 pixels.
