How to show labels of certain vertexes while keeping the whole network available

Hi, Tony. I find when the network size grows, it becomes harder to label the vertex. In my case I don't need to label all nodes but want to highlight some important node, such as a list of node I keep track, or some nodes with a degree higher than 10. However, I still want to keep the network compelete. Do you know how to achieve this purpose?

Vertex labels can be applied conditionally.

Using the Autofill Columns feature you can specify the location of labels. One location is "None." You can specify a data attribute to use for a test condition. For example, you could require that a vertex have a Betweenness Centrality above a threshold inorder to display its label.

This can be performed in a more manual way by creating an =IF() function in the Vertex Label cell.
