Labels not showing properly

Hi there,

Newbie to NodeXL, so I appreciate your help. I am trying to display twitter data graphically, but the labels are not displaying properly. The label appears on the band and not on the actual node. I want the nodes to be labeled with author information, not the pathways. ANy suggestions?

Thanks!

To label vertices using the Label shape:
Select the Vertices worksheet.
If the worksheet's Visual Properties column group is not visible, show the column group.
For each vertex that should have a Label shape, enter Label in the Shape column and enter the label text in the Label column.
Show the graph to make your changes appear in the Graph Pane. The vertex will look something like this:

To label vertices with an annotation:
Select the Vertices worksheet.
If the worksheet's Visual Properties column group is not visible, show the column group.
For each vertex that should be annotated with a label, enter the label text in the Label column.
Show the graph to make your changes appear in the Graph Pane. The vertex will look something like this:
