Legend Questions

Mar 4, 2011 at 4:25 AM

Hi there,  I'm using NODEXL to visualize a medium sized graph (about 1100 nodes in 21 distinct groups).  I'm using shapes and colours to help distinguish the groups.  Once upon a time, the image legend had the colors of all the groups listed, but that seems to have disappeared and I can't figure out how to make those colours come back.  Also, I'd really like to include the shapes in the legend, but can't figure out how to do so.  Is there a way to do this, or am I going to have to photoshop a legend once I'm finished laying out the graph?  

Thanks.

Ryan:

NodeXL's graph legend (NodeXL, Show/Hide, Graph Elements, Legend) works with the following features:

* Autofill Columns (NodeXL, Visual Properties, Autofill Columns)

* Schemes (NodeXL, Visual Properties, Schemes)

* Dynamic Filters (NodeXL, Analysis, Dynamic Filters)

It doesn't yet work with the Groups features (NodeXL, Analysis, Groups).  We have a work item for that, but we haven't gotten to it yet.
