Separating Bi-Directional Edges when Importing CSV

Hello,

I am using the graphical interface for creating a graph from a .csv file. The issue I'm having is if I have for instance the edges A -> B and B -> A, in my data these are two completely separate unidirectional edges with different attributes and I need them to be represented in the graph as such. However, when I load the file the program combines the edges into a single bidirectional edge and discards the attributes for one of them. I do not want this to happen but I can't seem to find an option to turn it off which is pretty trivial thing to implement so I imagine it must be possible somehow right? So assuming it's possible how do I do this?

Thanks!

Are you using spreadsheet import? Make sure your edges don't have 'Undirected' value in the type column (or no type column at all).

I am spreadsheet import yes. And I don't have a type column but when I import it without one it defaults to directed type so that isn't the issue.

What version of Gephi are you using? Can you post a few screenshots of the process you follow?

And can you post sample rows and the wrong edges in Gephi created by those rows?
