New giant component filter and "Select" button?

Post by broorg » 13 Jan 2018 17:29

Hi, I've updated my gephi version to 0.9.2. and for filtering out the outsiders of my graphs (see attached screenshot, the "asteroid belt" which has no connection to the main center needs to be removed) I use the giant component filter as the first step of every analysis.

But with the new release there is a new button added to the filter, "Select" on the left side of "Filter". What does that button do? It seems it removes the outsiders but apparently it only hides them because my node number has no "x% visible" like after every other filter process?
  • So what does that button do exactly?
  • And how does it differ to the "Filter" button from 0.9.1.
  • And what happens exactly if I "Select" first and then use "Filter" instead of only using "Filter"?

Hi,
Filter button removes the non-selected nodes from the view, and select button only selects the nodes included in your filter logic, so you can do something with them with right-click context menu or something.

So "Select" selects the nodes/edges that are filtered out, basically the opposite of "export to new workspace"?

I think it selects the nodes that are not filtered out.
