2. Click Import taking note of the contents of the Default interaction field
3. Select the newly created network from the network tab and click the Edge Attribute Browser

Every edge selected should display the Default interaction type between the two nodes (eg. pp). Repeat steps 1-4, but change the Default interaction (eg. cc)
