Ordnung muss sein

First impression is for me a wish to have zoom tool, to be closer or more fare to the patch element. Maybe it is available but I cannot find in menu tool like this.

Next one, is to nesting group of elements into patch. User can compress/uncompress vault of nodes.

Third wish is to add some sticky grid to the patch. Elements and connections may lay in clean arrangment ;)

Thanks, golden fish!

@woei made a module “CreateSubpatch”…

should be possible with xpath/setpatch…

i have started to create a new module CreateSubpatch based on Kalles Autoname Module. But I do not find time to finish my ideas. Kalle, that would be the next step. do you find time for it?

Suggestion for a new module

Select a buch of nodes
Create in/outlets only for selected IOBoxes with the name of the connected pin

don’t know.
but you may pass me your files.

{CODE(ln=>1)}should be possible with xpath/setpatch…^
How to do this?

Two another wishes:

  1. CreateSubpath or PatchesNesting/Grouping may have an option to add an Icon. Small picture (or video clip) describbing visually what is inside, for user memory/understanding.

  2. Some links between nodes are going the same way, others are crossing. I suggest to add an “dot” like in electronic schemes. It shows so the links have the connection…
    2b. Maybe also an “bus” for group of links?

should be possible to add a feature like this to woei’s module.
using
*WindowLists (Windows)
*HWND (Windows)
*ScreenShot (EX9.Texture)
*Writer (EX9.Texture)

but an 16*16 icon only in rare cases will give you an idea about the patch…

in case you ever visited some of my module pages (in case you didn’t: see kalle.modules.vvvv ) you’ll see that there is a thumbnail of almost every module i did. so be sure that i somehow like this idea ;)

If you let your linkstyle “PolyLine” (which is default setting for good reasons) you almost never have this problem.

IMHO the linkstyle “VHV” only has disadvantages.
If you ever had to analyze/understand/modify a larger patch/project by someone else with only those and linkstyle “Bezier” and you keep shifting nodes, you know what i mean.
if you don’t have time this can be really annoying.

dear friends, please prefer “PolyLine” and use the other styles as rare as possible.

didn’t i make a module with Get/SetPatch, which resets all links to PolyLine and also deletes the Linkpoints?
have to search my discs.
