Node Placement on Sin Wave Layout?

Tony,

 

What is the method to determine how Node's are placed on the Sin Wave Layout?  Is there a way to alter the layout?

Think I figured it out.  It is the order of the Vertices on the 'Vertices' Tab, correct?

No.  It happens to work that way today, but you can't depend on that always being the case.

To specify the order of vertices for either of the Sine Wave layouts (or Circle, Spiral and Grid), do this:

1. Go to NodeXL, Show/Hide, Workbook Columns and check "Layout."  This will show the Layout columns on the Vertices worksheet.

2. On the Vertices worksheet, fill in the Layout Order column.  If you want the vertices to be laid out in the order they appear in the worksheet, you can enter the formula "=ROW()" in the column's first cell.
