Question for NodeXL users: How do you use vertex labels?

Jul 22, 2009 at 6:27 PM

As part of an ongoing redesign effort to simplify NodeXL and make it easier to use, we're planning to change the way vertex labels are specified in the workbook.  You will still be able to show a vertex as text inside a box, which NodeXL currently refers to as a "Primary Label."  You will also still be able to "annotate" vertex shapes (Circle, Square, etc.) and images with text next to the vertex, which NodeXL currently refers to as a "Secondary Label."  However, you will no longer be able to have both a Primary Label and a Secondary Label, meaning that you won't be able to annotate text inside a box with additional text next to the box.

We're wondering if anyone would be affected by this.  If you currently use both the Primary Label AND the Secondary Label on the same rows in your NodeXL workbooks, please post a message here.

Also, do you ever use multiline primary labels, where you insert a line break in the Primary Label column to force NodeXL to show multiple lines of text inside the box?
