Complete graph of predecessors

+1 vote

if there's possible to show only shortest-path graph in predecessors windows, how do I get complete predecessors graph?

I have complex graph and want to know, what has to happen before some node. Normally I would use predecessors window, but since there's only shortest path shown, I don't see some edges (and duplicate nodes), so it's useless for me, because it has completly different meaning.

Please help me, how do I get complete information about predecessors?

Unfortunately, it is currently not possible to change the behavior of the predecessor and successor context views in this regard.

However, you can try to use "Tools" -> "Select Elements" as explained in How to unlimit neighbourhood / predecessos / successos to select the desired set of nodes. After selecting the desired set of nodes, use "Edit" -> "Copy" or CTRL+C to copy those elements and paste them into a new editor. When doing so the edges of the induced subgraph will be copied as well.

Finally, please consider voting for Better neighborhood/successors/predecessors view.
