Subgraphs

Subgraphs

Subgraphs are a way to view parts of your node graph (DAG) in isolation. This allows you to break down work in progress into logically separate parts. Adding a Node to a subgraph creates a reference to the original Node in the Subgraph. A node can live in multiple Subgraphs.

Creating and Modifying Subgraphs

New subgraphs can be created in two different ways:

  • Clicking the + icon in the Subgraph tree sidebar
  • Clicking Create Subgraph in the context menu (which can be accessed by right-clicking any node in the graph)

Nodes can be added to existing subgraphs in two different ways:

  • Using Add to Subgraph from the context menu.

  • Dragging and dropping nodes into an existing subgraph. This is supported in Graph, Node Grid, and Column Grid views.
