Presenting the neighbors of nodes


To present the neighbors of nodes in a new window:

  1. Select one or more nodes.
  2. Choose Settings from the Options menu.
  3. Adjust the Tree Depth slider to specify the distance of the neighboring nodes from the selected nodes.

    If the slider is -1, the depth is infinite and the full reachability tree would be laid out.


  4. Pick the set of arc types to follow from the Arc Set popup menu in the dialog.
  5. Click Done to dismiss the dialog.
  6. Choose Neighbors from the Navigate menu.

    The incoming and outgoing arcs of the types specified by the arc set are followed up to the given distance to obtain the neighboring nodes.

    A new Neighbors window appears, presenting all the neighbor nodes of the selected node(s), with relationships among the neighbor nodes shown by various types of arcs from one node to another.
