Hi – I’m trying to create six networks that each contain the same six nodes labeled with individuals’ last names, but with a different set of connections between the six nodes. When I create each of the six networks, however, the placement of the nodes at the periphery of the circle is different. (I’m using the “Circle” layout for the network display.) How do I control that placement so each of the six networks contains the same nodes in the same clockwise order around the circle? This will make a visual comparison across the six networks much easier.
Thanks for any help or guidance you can give!

You can control the layout order via Show/Hide > Workbook columns > Layout > Layout order in column L of the vertices spreadsheet.
You can also lock the vertices in the graph pane by clicking on the lock symbol on the top right of the graph pane.
