Exclude types / images from graph view

Is your feature request related to a problem? Please describe.

There should be a way to add exclusions to graph view.

Describe the solution you’d like

Select what types of objects I want to appear in the view

Describe alternatives you’ve considered

Having it so that at least cover images / icons are not referenced in the graph view (otherwise everything shows up twice)

Additional context

Exemple of the issue with cover images showing twice:


I thought of creating a new request but it makes sense to add it here:

An ability to display graph view by sets

It would be great to filter the graph view to display only the objects from a particular set. Currently it would only display objects of same type but with sets from relations features, this would help us to view only those nodes from a set as a graph like a Graph view for the set


A separate filter option just like the ones for sets would also highly benefit the graphs view to reduce the clutter. One could display only the nodes matching a certain criteria


@lynxlove It would be great if we could set graph views with pre-set parameters and save them.

Like exclude type XY or only include type X with relation Y … etc

I use my anytype for multiple things and having a very cluttered graph view with everything kind of defeats the purpose


Maybe having on the sidebar or in contextual menus options like “Show only this type of relation” or “Hide this type of relation” would work.

Or, in the case of objects: “Show only this objects hierarchy” - maybe this should be the default when accesing graph view from an object, at least fading out all the other stuff.

In general, being able to filter relations and shown things in the graph view would be a really useful tool for mind mapping and organizing.
