Edges in front of nodes?

Post by christianTangoBerlin » 23 Oct 2017 19:19

Sometimes it would be appropriate to display edges in front of nodes, not the other way round which seems to be default. Can it be done in the present version 0.9.2 ?

Yeah, but only in preview, by changing the order of renderers

Right, I see that, and that is very helpfull. It does not solve everything though, since: One might wish to be able to have different settings for different groups of edges, some to go behind and some to go in front in the same graph.Is THAT possible? Sorry for being demanding! :D

Sorry that's not possible, but you can post process it by exporting to SVG and edit the result with inkscape.

Thank you so much for your replies, and your time. It is appreciated, as is Gephi.

One could wish for such a feature to be build into a coming version, so each note and each link could be specified separately by an attribute, in order to render such a 3-dimensional representation. Of cause the graphs can already be said to be multi-dimensional, but still...Also, what I cannot figure out right now is, what sorts of programming conflicts such an attribute could cause.

If anyone comes a cross a rendering filter that will do the trick, eventually based on some column in note+data or edges+data please let me know!

thanks again....
