yED Live - How to Move Labels

0 votes
Hello everybody

I'm using both yED Live and yED Desktop

I'm trying to understand if, as for the desktop version, it is possible, into live version, to move the position of the Labels ... even outside the symbol to which it refers.


thank you for attention

this is possible. 

  1. Select the label with Shift+Click
  2. Switch to the properties panel and select 'Default' placement
  3. Drag the label to any position inside or outside of the node
  4. Hold Ctrl while moving to freely place the label
