Exclude some nodes from hierarchical layout

0 votes

I'm creating GraphML programmatically and then using the hierarchical manager in YED to create a readable diagram. (The result is excellent!).  However, there are some node types I would like to exclude from the initial hierarchical repositioning.

Are there any properties/attributes one can set in GraphML that cause node exclusion?  Or is my best strategy simply to place those nodes in a particular geographical area of the diagram and exclude them by selection before applying the layout manager?

It is not possible to specify properties in GraphML that will result in certain elements being ignored in layout algorithms.

Your best option is indeed the selection approach.
