rotation of graph node labels

18 views (last 30 days)
I am plotting some graphs using circular layout, for example
plot(digraph([1 2 3],[2 3 1]),"layout","circle");axis equal
The node labels come out rotated. I can't find a property to set in order to make them stand up straight.

The labels will be straight in most layouts (all but 'circle', 'layered'). You can first use 'circle' layout and then convert to having no layout and instead setting x, y data explicitly:
p = plot(G, 'Layout', 'circle');
p.XData = XData;
This will make the labels stand straight.

Thanks. I find this to be more useful than the first answer. An accessible text rotation property would be more useful. This works but it messes up the label positions which were fine.
