... That's exactly what I try to do :-)). Well, I thought my posting that I use a face was clear about this.

That could be. What I do is I'm playing around with Christian Langenreiters code of touchgraph. And there the nodes are implemented as faces because these are just appended to a layout block. The faces carry around all that's needed. So, IIRC the 'text value of a face is the text you will see on screen, right? It's not the VID text word. And I don't think that I can assign a layout block that uses VID words to this text property, right?

:-) That's smart! I'm going to try it, thanks! Robert
