Help! How do I pull Nodes to the front of my graph?

Aug 30 at 9:45 PM
Help! I'm writing a paper and it's due tomorrow night. I used NodeXL on my data set and I'm trying to create a visual which shows the top 20 tweeters in a conversation based on betweenness centrality. I designated the nodes by setting the vertex size and color. Then I grouped under group options, "The colors specified in the color column on the vertices worksheet." I have a graph but the important nodes are stuck behind all the other connecting lines. I tried to attache an image to this but it won't let me. I can email it to anyone who is willing to help me.

Anyways, my question is, how do I bring my top 20 betweenness centrality nodes to the front of the graph??

Hello!

Thank you for the interest in NodeXL!

NodeXL has a column in the Vertices Worksheet called Layout Order.

You can reveal this column using the NodeXL>Show/Hide>Workbook Columns>Layout

This attribute may also be set via the NodeXL>Visual Properties>Autofill Columns dialog:

Select the attribute you would like to use to determine the display or Layout order in this dialog using the Vertex Layout Order option.

Regards,

Marc
