How do I find the node id of a pictured node

+1 vote
I have constructed a graph, but my construction method is buggy.  I see the bug (improper connection to a node) in yEd.  I want to know what node it is.  I am hoping to find out the node id I gave in the gml file so I can figure out how to fix it.

I was expecting the node id I gave to be show in the properties table, but it seems not to be.  Is there another place I can look?

No, there is no way to get the ID for a node in yEd. This is not possible because these IDs are an implementation detail of the file format and are not meant to be exposed.

A simple way to make the IDs available in yEd would be to add labels to your nodes (in GML) that use the ID as text.
