How to import data and present multiple lable text without overwriting each other?

0 votes
I want to create a Network diagram from a .xls file. In this file I have a table of edges with three properties: switch A port, switch B port, and throughput. I want to create a Properties Mapper that automatically use the info in that table and create a link (edge) between nodes with on in formation close to node A, the second one close to node B, and the third in the middle of the line. Can I do that using just Properties Mapper? (without grabbing the text and moving manually after importing)

No, properties mapper cannot be used to create edges (or nodes). Properties mapper can be used to create labels for nodes or edges (up to a certain number) and change the properties of nodes and edges.

The way to go would be to structure your spreadsheet in such a way that yEd's Excel import creates all nodes and edges.
