The online menu has this to say:

To change subtopic layout type:

1. In Map View, select the parent topic of the tree whose layout you want to change. Select the central topic to control the layout for the whole map.

2. Choose Format > Topic.

TIP: If the Topic inspector is already open click the Format tab.

3. In the Inspector, choose the layout type from the Subtopics Layout pop-up menu. For organizational chart layouts you can choose the number of levels in the Depth pull-down menu.

To return the topic to its default layout type choose Automatic in the Subtopics Layout pop-up menu.

Thank you.

I found this menu, but some of the items are greyed out. For example I can set Right, but cannot set Left. What could be the reason for such behavior?

Hi Andrey,

 Thank you for reaching out to us Andrey. Left layout has not been the part of our offerings for several years. 
We apologize if it had caused confusion. We are planning to remove it from the application in next point release.

Dear Shilpa,

  Got it!
  Yes, the Left option causes confusions.

  When do you plant it distribute the next point release?

Hi Andrey

The point release is generally a fast follower and comes within 3-4 months of the major release. At this time, we are still deciding what is being included so the timing is a bit in flux right now.

Cheers... Blair
