The proper way is to make six menu items united in two groups:
As for me the most important items are vertical top and horisontal middle. I
used to use the latter to align the main thread (as well as alternative
threads) on activity diagrams.
I also recommend to explore Tgif (http://bourbon.usc.edu:8001/tgif). This is
the most powerful graphics tool I ever used. The only problem with it is the
impossibility to make complex resizable groups of widgets, which may be
considered as new macrowidgets. I tried to adapt tgif for UML widgets, but
this problem stopped me.
