Use the PlotRange Option.


ShowGraph[CompleteGraph[10], VertexLabel -> KSubsets[Range[5], 3],
  PlotRange -> All]

If we want to give the PlotRange explicitly, we have to remember that
Combinatorica scales the plot points to fit in the square {0,0} to {1,1} and
we must make sure the AspectRatio is Automatic.

ShowGraph[CompleteGraph[10], VertexLabel -> KSubsets[Range[5], 3],
    AspectRatio -> Automatic,
    PlotRange -> {{-0.05, 1.4}, {-0.05, 1.1}}];

I would like to label the vertices of a graph with sequences, like this.
ShowGraph[CompleteGraph[10], VertexLabel -> KSubsets[Range[5], 3]]

The problem is that the label get chopped off at the right margin.
What is an easy solution for getting the labels fully readable in this case?
