Rotating the Text Labels while reading from Excel

0 votes
I am reading the Graph from excel, some of the label edges I would like to be rotated. Is there a way to include this instruction as part of the label content?

(I am assuming it will be similar uf using the html tags in the text, if possible what would be the tags and syntax.

No, it is not possible to enable "Auto-Rotate with Edge" with instructions in the label text.

What you can do is the following:

  1. Create a dedicated column (let us say "rotate") in your spreadsheet that is part of the "Edge List" data range.
  2. After importing your spreadsheet, use "Tools" -> "Select Elements" to select all edges for which "rotate" is set to whatever value you have chosen to mean "text should be rotated".
  3. Click "Auto-Rotate with Edge" in the properties view in yEd's lower right corner to enable the feature for the selected edge labels.
