In the figure above, I’d like to put all of the nodes with the name starting with “test” into a group and give them a red color. However, as you can see, the center node of this local graph, i.e. the node of “test node” is not affected by the Group Filter.
IMHO, if the center node is neither affected by the filer and nor the group filter, this center node is different from the other nodes. In other words, this center node is actually in a group which contains only the center node. So why not give this group a distinct color, different from the default node color? It can be enabled by a setting or be enabled by using CSS snippet.
It was moved to bug grave yard. However, I didn’t see any clue why that post is moved to bug graveyard.
Anyway, if the moderator think this issue is a new feature deserving a feature request, here it comes.
Ultimately, it sounds like we all want the same thing: visibility of the active note in the graph view. A lot of the suggestions here would address all 3 requests. I love the idea of having a group query for the active note, but would settle for a CSS override if that were easier for devs to implement.
Recently, I’ve been thinking of this request with a geographic metaphor: think of each note as an address, the local graph is like a map of the city, and the global graph, well, a globe. It would be very useful to have that address marked on the local map and the globe. Who doesn’t love a “you are here” marker to orient themselves?
Compared to when the linked request was first made, there’s a number of features that make this request seem very close. Hopefully, these requests together can get more visibility and make it happen.
