Is it at all possible to add an option for text labels to be radially laid out?

Hello! Thanks for the interest in NodeXL!

We appreciate your feature request. and we have added it to our list of potential pending work items.

To implement your feature I think we will need to allow users to specify two radial values: the point around the vertex to which the text should anchor and the rotation value of the text itself. Is that what you mean?

HI Mark,

What I meant was this:
When selecting a Circle layout, for text labels to be laid out from the middle of the circle. This will cause the labels to point outwards like the spikes of wheel:

That looks nice. What did you use to create it?

I only copied an image from a demo of an implementation of Danny Holten's hierarchical edge bundling algorithm in D3:
