Copy all Labels to Text

+1 vote
I am analyzing large amounts of data, yEd is great for helping me to find groups within this data set.  I want to have the data (the Node labels) avaliable for use.  Is there anyway to export all node labels within a selected area into excel or any other document even just as text.

Well, you could try to copy the nodes and edges with the labels you want into a new editor tab and then save that sub-graph in TGF format. TGF is a very simple text-based format which you might be able to modify by hand so you can import the texts into another application. This apporach will only work for nodes/edges with at most one label, though.

A more complex approach would be to use XSLT to extract label text from GraphML.
