This might come in handy when dealing with dense graphs with a large number of nodes where it becomes necessary to distinguish and be able to read the label distinctly. This algorithm is usually used in conjugation with other algorithms wherein the other algorithm defines the layout of the network and Label Adjust layout algorithm then helps to adjust the labels in the resulting layout.

How to do it…

Using the Les Misérables network, we will explain how to use the Label Adjust layout algorithm to obtain a new version of the network where labels can be read clearly. The steps remain the same for ...
