I think the current way of displaying the current note in Local graph is quite confusing. Here is how it looks now:
So the current note is displayed with the slightly bigger circle. But the circle size has another meaning - the quantity of the links, so this is confusing (at least for me).
I’m pretty sure there are better ways to display current note in Local graph: by underlining or inverting the color of it’s name, by changing the color of the circle…
I know it is possible to do this by editing the CSS, but the circle size will stay the same (as far as I understand). And I think this issue should be fixed in the core, without needing to do some additional CSS editing.
What do you think?
Yes, I also like to use the localgraph to orient myself, but I always have problems with it because I lose sight of the “current location”.
It would be really great if the current file could be highlighted and maybe also centered each time.
I’ve been trying to make this happen via CSS. The graph view uses so it’s difficult to target approriately.
In app.css there is code for
.graph-view.color-fill-1 (repeated for 1-6). I assumed this had something to do with depth from current note, which would be terrific, but it doesn’t do anything as far as I can tell.
My sense is that this existed, but was replaced with the “Color Groups”. Is it possible to target the current file in a search?
Agreed, although I don’t have any solid suggestion for improving the current implementation. Perhaps the current note could be anchored at the center and have a stronger “repelling force” so that it stands out visually?
Perhaps it could be rendered as a slightly different geometry, such as a ring. I think that would stand out very well, independent of color too:
I just noticed that this was implemented in 0.12.12
Graph view will now highlight the current focused file in a different color. This can be configured through the css class
.graph-view.color-fill-focused, or disabled if you set the color to
- This shows up in the main Graph view, when you have a note selected
- And it shows up as the local node in the Local Graph.
Yellow is my current note:
