Bug Description

Loading time-dynamics using the <spells> tag, the new elements are appearing, but they won't disappear, as moving the timeline filter. Minimal working example:

<gexf version="1.1" xmlns="" xmlns:xsi="" xsi:schemaLocation="">
    <graph mode="dynamic" timeformat="date">
   <node id="20" label="Node1" start="2008-09-09" />
   <node id="18" label="Node2" start="2010-03-31" />
    <edge id="20-18" source="20" target="18">
                <spell start="2008-01-01" end="2008-01-15" />
                <spell start="2009-01-30" end="2009-02-01" />

After loading this, and moving timeline to 2008-02-01 - 2008-08-01, the edge is still visible.


As explained here (, this feature has been renamed and is not supported by the current version of Gephi.

Please name these "slices" instead of "spells".
