I think it could be useful a function that lets user, once at least two nodes have been selected, to link them based on positions, so that when one drags, for example, a GetSlice around the patch, its IOBox “indices source” node follows back.
Ctrl+Shift+L could be it (from Align one could go straight to this anchoring function).
and yes, I was meaning that; I noted that sometimes I just think to have selected a group of nodes, but didn’t do it (then ctrl z plus reselect…).
More: when building patch often happens that one have to change, due to chaos in node creating and moving and so on, the position of just a bunch of nodes that constitute, so to say, “group” itself.
So “grouping” nodes I thought would be useful to rearrange quickly a patch.
Yes, there are also subpatches, but this would just mean to move disorder from one place to another.
Said that, I guess such a change it’s not a snap, and most of all not a priority, and neither is appreciated by users as none rated it. It remains just an idea thrown in the rumble.
