Comment: Update Third-party section


Q: I load the network into GUESS but no node is shown or the network is loaded without Graph Modifier panel.

 A: There are some attribute names are reserved in GUESS. The same attribute name in the data could cause conflict in GUESS. Rename the following attribute names in your data if exist. Then save the data and reload into Sci2. 

  • count
  • size
  • type

The following show sample data issues in NWB file format. Simply rename the attribute to size_d, type_d, count_d would solve the problem. See our documentation on GUESS to learn more about GUESS.

Code Block
id*int label*string size*float type*string count*int
1	"Amber" 4.0 "ellipse" 4
2	"Azizha" 4.0 "ellipse" 5
3	"Brend" 4.0 "ellipse" 6
