Ignore one filter while using another

Feb 5, 2016 at 8:49 PM
Hi,

I have set up a network so that different edges are different relationships. If I want to show only the "advice" relationship value 3, I set the "support" relationship to 0. But it appears that NodeXL will show the edge only of Advice = 3 if Support = 0. So if Support = 3 and Advice = 3, it will not show the edge.

Is there a way to get NodeXL to ignore a filter?

thanks,

Hello!

Thank for the interest in NodeXL!

I am not sure I understand the problem sufficiently to answer just yet. Can you share the workbook and schedule a time to review?

You may find the "Dynamic Filters" feature (the button is on the top of the Graph Pane or NodeXL>Analysis>Dynamic Filters) to be useful. It should make the relationship column visible as a slider (if the contents of this column are all numerical).

This slider may allow you to show and hide just the relationship types you want.

Regards,

Marc

Ok, the filters did work. I also found a useful post on Multiple Relationships (http://nodexl.codeplex.com/discussions/256988) which shows another way of doing what I want.
