Tooltip labels for edges?

Jul 29, 2015 at 9:05 PM
Does nodexl offer tooltip labels for edges? On the vertices sheet, there is a column for tooltip, but there's no such column in the edges sheet. Is there any way to get these?

Ah, I just looked this up a bit more... so is the only way to get it to add a label to edges?

Thank you for the interest in NodeXL!

As you have discovered, NodeXL allows for edge labels but not edge tool tips (the number of hit targets and edge occlusions is an obstacle to performant mouse over detection of edges).

You can selective turn on edge labels. From the edges worksheet, reveal the "Labels" columns via NodeXL>Show/Hide>Workbook Columns>Labels.
