Controlling graph data visualization

You can manipulate the how your data is visualized in the graph.

The rightmost sidebar has the following features:

  • Relations: Control simple and aggregated relations.

  • Limits: Applies the filters from a specific dashboard to the graph. This restricts the nodes that are produced from adding relations to a subset of those that are allowed by the current filters on a dashboard. For example, select the Articles dashboard to count only the number of links to articles in your dataset. If you have filtered the Articles dashboard, then the filters are applied to the count.

  • Styles: You can add lenses, change the selected lens, remove one or more lenses, and modify lens settings.

  • Cards: You can apply special views on the currently-selected nodes.

  • Refresh counts: After you make change in the side panel, click to refresh the counts.

  • When you click an option from the sidebar it opens in a pop-out panel. To keep that pop-out open, pin it.

  • To close all pop-outs, ensure they’re unpinned, then, in the sidebar, click the last open option.

In bottom bar, the selected nodes are shown in a table. You can hide columns, sort rows in a different order, sort them by type, and export the table to a CSV.

If you want to keep any changes you make to these tools, you must save them. From the Options menu, click Edit, make changes, and click Save. Alternatively, you can save changes as a new graph. From the toolbar, click SaveAs a new graph.
