9.3.7.27 The (Plot Details) Node Tab

The Node tab will appear in Plot Details dialog when you plot an Alluvial diagram or a Sankey diagram. You can use the controls to customize the appearance of the nodes.

Display the Nodes

Border Color

Specify the color of the border of nodes using the color chooser.

Border Thickness

Specify the border thickness for the nodes.

Fill Color

Specify the fill color for the nodes using the color chooser.

Node Width(%)

Specify the width of the nodes. The value is the percentage based on the layer width, but the total width of the nodes should be less than 50% of the layer width.

Transparency

Set the color transparency for the nodes.

Adjust the Gaps

The Alluvial diagram below shows you what the gaps are.

Gap Between Nodes(%)

Specify the gap height between the nodes of same plot. The value is the percentage based on the layer height, and all gaps at one plot should be less then 90% of the layer height.

Gap Between Node and Link(%)

Specify the gap width between the node and the start/end of the link line. Please note, this gap value is associated to the Node Width(%) above:

Node Width(%)* N + Gap Between Node and Link(%) *(N-1)*2 = 100

Arrow

This control group is only available for Sankey diagram, used to specify how to show arrows on the nodes.

Show Arrow for

Specify whether show arrows for nodes and decide to show the arrows on which nodes, Start Nodes, End Nodes, Start&End Nodes, Intermediate Nodes or All Nodes.

Arrow Shape

Specify the arrow shape for the nodes.

Angle

Specify the angle of the arrow head, by degree. The maximum value of the angle is 180, which means the flat angle.

Position

Customize the position of the nodes.

Alignment

Specify how to align the nodes between the different plots:

  • Left: Nodes without any input are moved as "node depth"=0(at leftmost), then all next nodes are decided accordingly.
  • right: Nodes without any output are moved as maximum depth(at rightmost), then all previous nodes are decided accordingly.
  • Center: All next nodes are decided by left node, but nodes without any input are moved as "node depth"= "minimum depth of output" - 1, nodes without any output are moved as "node depth" = "maximum depth of input" + 1
  • Justify: All next nodes are decided by left node, but nodes without any input are moved as "node depth" = 0, nodes without any output are moved as the maximum depth.

Enable Horizontal/Vertical Movement

Specify whether allows user to move the nodes horizontally or/and Vertically
