Subgraph problem

Nov 18, 2009 at 11:56 AM

Hello, am a newbie to NodeXL (I have version 1.0.1.98) but have completed 3/4 of the tutorial successfully. However, am now having a problem generating subgraph images for a relatively small test network. Have followed the procedure specified, namely,

Clicked on "Subgraph Images" button in the ribbon and opened the "Subgraph Images" dialog box, then, after selecting the level of adjacent vertices to include, checked "Insert subgraph thumbnails into the vertices worksheet". Then checked "In each vertex's subgraph, select the vertex" and "In each vertex's subgraph, select the vertex's incident edges". After clicking "Create", the Subgraph column is added to the "Vertex" worksheet but the column cells are empty except for tiny solid squares in the top left hand corner of each cell. Can you help please?

Hi, which Graph Layout were you using when the subgraph images were created? The subgraphs are generated using the currently selected layout. From what you describe it seems you might have selected the "None" layout. If that's the case, try changing the layout (e.g. Harel-Koren) and then re-generate the subgraph.

Hello eduarda,
Yes, that did the trick! Many thanks.
