## Re: [igraph] igraph network coordinates with constraints?

```OK, I have added support for this in the 0.6-main tree, for the
classic Fruchterman-Reingold and Kamada-Kawai layouts. It is actually
even more general. For each vertex and each coordinate (x, y & z in
3d) you can define lower and upper bounds. If for a given vertex the
lower bound matches the upper bound, then that vertex is not moved at
all (along that coordinate). For the vertices that can be moved freely
you can specify -Inf as a lower bound and Inf as an upper bound.

You can download a snapshot of the 0.6 R package from here:
Well, from tomorrow, the packages are build during the night.
This is an R source package. If you need a windows binary R package,

Be aware that the 0.6 R package in not backward compatible, since
vertices and edges are numbered from one instead of zero!

Best,
Gabor
