Different Opacity for Nodes and Labels?

Oct 31, 2011 at 9:46 PM

i'm working with the newest version of nodexl, and wanted to know if you can have different opacity settings for a node and a label. that is, i have nodes with a variety of opacities to show certain info, but would like the labels to be 100% opaque regardless of the opacity of the node itself. is this possible? thank you!

No, the vertex opacity and label opacity cannot be different.  Our rationale is this: We assume that 99% of the time, both should adjust together.  Adding another column to enable the 1% case would complicate opacity adjustments for everyone else.

Could adjusting the Size work for you instead?  You can make vertices smaller without altering the size of their labels.
