Is it possible to map node ids to node labels

0 votes
I have a graphml file where the node ids are strings. Is there a way to have yEd use node id as node label?

Thank You.

No. GraphML IDs are an implementation detail of the GraphML format. If you need in-application IDs for your graph elements, you need to specify those IDs as extra data:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" standalone="no"?>
<graphml xmlns="http://graphml.graphdrawing.org/xmlns">
  <!--Created by yEd 3.14.4-->
  <key attr.name="ID" attr.type="string" for="node" id="d4">

  <graph edgedefault="directed" id="G">
    <node id="n0">
      <data key="d4"><![CDATA[MyNode01]]></data>
