This is a very long time wanted feature and really I don’t know why i didn’t posted yet. stupid.
Would be nice to have more option on the way GUI elements selection works.
if you drag into patch you select both nodes and links.
there could be a mode in which you can select just nodes.
The node selection mode could be activated by pressing a key during selection.
This feature is so useful when you want to delete some nodes in a patch where there are many links crossing behind without breaking everything.
