Show item colors on a graph

If you have assigned colors to sources, nodes or attribute values that are displayed in the graph, you can display the item color indicator on the graph shapes.

Change the items displayed on a graph

You can choose to show more or fewer associated items on a graph—for example, if you have graphed a source, you may want to see only the nodes that code the source or only the 'see also'  links and memos.
