Selecting neighboring nodes along outgoing arcs


To select neighboring nodes along outgoing arcs:

  1. Select one or more source nodes.
  2. Pick the appropriate arc type for the outgoing arcs from the Arc Type palette.

    The any choice in the palette matches any arc type.

    Since composite arcs may contain (elided) non-composite arcs of the specified arc type, the search may pass through these composite arcs to select the matching nodes. The composite arc type choice matches only composite arcs.

  3. Choose Outgoing Nodes from the Select menu.

    Neighboring nodes that are connected to any of the source nodes by outgoing arcs of the specified type become selected.

    If you hold down the shift key while choosing the Outgoing menu item, the neighboring nodes are added to the previously selected source nodes (rather than replacing them).
