Hexagonal Grid Graph has non-hexagonal preview?

I’m not sure if this is supposed to be this way. I haven’t used hexagonal grid graphs before, but the preview of it doesn’t look like what i imagine it should look like at all:

Do i have to interpret this preview in some special way?


True, the preview currently shows the underlaying grid. If you scan the graph you’ll see hexagons.

The result still matches the skewed area though.
I guess hexagonal is by default expected to be isometric as well (atleast it seems to match the same skewed shape)?
Is there a way to make the covered area square?


No. Internally, the hexagonal graph is implemented using a grid graph (since they are isomorphic to each other). However, this means that the covered region is also shaped like a diamond.
You can make the hexagonal graph larger to cover your desired part of the world.
