I can't find the vertex options dialog box in nodexl version Can someone tell me how to get it ? It's the dialog shown in figure 5.8 pag. 78 in the book "Analyzing social media networks with nodexl"...

Thanks in advance

I don't have a copy of the book, but if you can tell me the dialog box's title (the text that appears in the bar at the top of the dialog box) and what sort of things you set using the dialog box, I can probably point you to the correct place in the newer version.

Thanks Tony, the title of the dialog as shown on the book is "Vertex Y Options", I suppose there is also a "Vertex X Options". It is used to set the the scale of graph axes, you can find the page(s) of the book here: (scroll down a little bit to see the dialog...)

Hello, Alvaro:

That is part of what is now called "Autofill Columns." To use it, do the following:

1) Go to NodeXL, Visual Properties, Autofill Columns in the Excel Ribbon.

2) In the Autofill Columns dialog box, select the Vertices tab.

3) In the "Vertex X" row on the Vertices tab, select a source column.

4) To specify how the numbers in that source column get mapped to x-coordinates, click the Options button for the "Vertex X" row.

5) Repeat steps 3 and 4 for "Vertex Y".

Got it ! I feel like a stupid, it was there ;-)
...obviously "Vertex X" --> options...

Thanks Tony for your patience
