puts each child right after the previous child along selected dimensions so that they appear to flow along these dimensions, while keeping the first child at its original position. A number can be optionally provided to indicate how much space to leave between every two objects.
Let's consider a simple case involving two objects, a cube and a sphere. Initially,
they are overlapping; we can only see a cube because of this. After
<g>, the sphere is moved such that it is next to the cube,
no longer overlapping with it.
Let's look at an example with more objects involved. This time,
we have a cube and three spheres forming a group.
Initially, they are all overlapping. By adding
l="flow x" to
they are rearranged into a line along the x axis where each child is next to
the previous child.
It is possible to flow in multiple directions simultaneously.
