Id of the node : I need text

Post by GuillaumeVGeo » 03 Nov 2017 14:36

Hi there,

I work with gephi since one month and I have a messy database. The database is usually made on excel then I import it on gephi. That creates nodes with Id in text format.

That I wan't is to be able to clean the database directly in Gephi. For this I need to create nodes, but I would like to have a Id in text format. If I create a node directly in Gephi, I have a node with an Id in Integer format, and apparently I can't modify it.

The main reason for this is when I go in the "Edge" list, I don't wan't an opaque list of integers.

Does somebody have a solution for me ?

Guillaume

At the moment I think you will need to input your graph data into gephi using a file format, with the text you need in ids, otherwise nodes are created with auto-incremental integer ids.

The simplest format is https://gephi.org/users/supported-graph ... preadsheet
