About NodeXL Options

The NodeXL options that were used to create this graph are available as a NodeXL options file. The options determined the graph colors, vertex shapes, edge widths, layout algorithm and many other graph characteristics.

If you are a NodeXL user, you can download the NodeXL options file and then import it into your own NodeXL workbook. Your graph will then have the same colors, vertex shapes, edge widths, layout algorithm and so on.

To import the downloaded NodeXL options file into a NodeXL workbook, use the following item in the Excel® ribbon:

Once you have imported the NodeXL options file into a NodeXL workbook, you can tell NodeXL to use these options for all new NodeXL workbooks that you create. To do that, use the following item in the Excel® ribbon:
