Is there a way to apply a graph lay out algorithm to a Graph object in such a way that a subset of its vertices and a subset of its edges are fixed beforehand, and their positions/shapes remain unaffected by the algorithm?

    $\begingroup$ Could you come up with an example of a Graph and the output you would expect? $\endgroup$ – Öskå Nov 4 '14 at 14:10
  • $\begingroup$ igraph's DrL layout generator has this feature and I'm working on an igraph interface for Mathematica. However, I did not yet expose this option because I got very disappointed with the results I got from DrL. I could never get it to look good on fairly simple graphs. $\endgroup$ – Szabolcs Oct 1 '15 at 17:40
