rank in component models

Is there a way to set a rank on components. On big diagram the alignment is confusing.

I'd like to align some components (like by layer) to be sure that some components will be always on top of other components.

Thank you.

Rank is set automatically based on line lenght.

->  is same rank

--> is one rank lower

---> is 2 rank lowers

You can use -[norank]> to create arrows between nodes that will be always on same rank independent of length.

Remember that you can also use hidden arrows to set your layout.
