Preventing vertex label overlaps in igraph

Hello all,

I'm currently working on a project that involves visualizing a network using the igraph package in R, and I've run into a bit of a challenge. I'm hoping someone here can provide some guidance.

I have successfully created a plot of a network using igraph, and I'm quite happy with the results. However, one issue that I'm facing is that the vertex labels are overlapping, making it difficult to read and interpret the graph effectively. I've tried adjusting various parameters and researching potential solutions, but I haven't been able to find a satisfactory way to prevent these label overlaps.

I was wondering if anyone in this community has experience with igraph and has successfully tackled this issue before. Is there a specific setting, parameter, or method that I can use to prevent vertex label overlaps in my network plot?

To provide some context, here's a network plot that I've generated:

Any help or advice you can offer would be incredibly valuable to me.

Thank you in advance for your assistance!

perhaps layout_with_graphopt with a high charge param

Thank you for your answer.

The above graph was generated with layout_with_mds, and it is important for me to keep that layout. I just want to move the vertex labels without affecting the position of the nodes.
