Hi Eduardo,

thank you so much for your response. Does this mean at this stage I cannot create and export a network with square nodes?

Yes, it is not possible at the moment.

Hello everyone.

First of all, congrats to the dev team. I hadn't used Gephi for three years and it's even better than before!

Any updates of the node shape functionality described in this topic?

I'm wondering about that as well. It would be extremely helpful if the shape of the node can be changed for individual nodes!

I'd really love to have this function too. It would be so helpful to partition the nodes with different shapes.

Just want to add my name to the list of users who feel this is an important, but minor, addition.

Same here, it would be cool to have shape as a ranking option instead of color or size (for example: rectangle node for low value attribute, circle node for high values)

Hi, I just became a member to say that the "individual shape change" feature would be extremely useful!
My thanks to the whole team for the great software

Hi there, in release Gephi 0.9.1 where can I find this option? I would like to create a network with circles, cubes, triangles and so on but it seems that in visualization options the nodes were deleted for these options. anyway if finally I can find these design features Can I do a preview? and the most important Can I export to sigma.js? thanks and congrats for this special software.

I'm new to Gephii, but would very much like a function that would differentiate nodes not only by color, but by shape - triangle, circle (solid and outline), square, star, etc.
I'm preparing a manuscript in which the images will all be B/W not color, so the colored nodes doesn't help me much.
