Box Layout algorithm

Nov 27, 2014 at 12:28 PM
I did groups based on CNM clusters and represented them in the layout with the Force Directed option (Layout Options "Box Layout algorithm), blocked the graph (selected all vertices and did Lock) and recorded the file.
When I open again the file, the layout appears unformatted, ie have the boxes but vertices are outside the boxes.

How do I resolve this? How do I get the vertices always stay inside the boxes?

Hello and thank you for the interest in NodeXL!

It may be that the Graph Layout was not set to "None". When the graph is reopened and displayed, the selected layout algorithm is run and it changes the location of the vertices.

If you set the layout to None, the locations will not be changed.

It did not work. I ran the graph layout, then set "No" and ultimately saved the project. When reopen the project the vertices were in the same place, but the box of each group was not.
I wanted everything to stay the same: position of vertices and position of the boxes of the groups.

does anyone know of any way to block the location of vertices and boxes of their groups?
