VL node inside region or not

#1

Hallo there is no static visual feedback telling us whether a node is inside a region or not, the only way is to start a connection or to move thing around.

confirmed. this is an issue still…


#3

What if the node turns the colour of the region…


#4

I would probably prefer and nudge/push thing…


#5

not sure what you mean by that… is it related to nodes in regions?


#6

Or maybe put a warning on nodes that look like being in a region, but aren’t?


#7

Yes I mean maybe that nodes cannot just be placed inside of region, if you try they either stop by the border, or push the region, and the other way round.


#8

this can lead to weird situations if you copy&paste stuff around. a visual hint that a node is overlapped by a region seems to be the best solution.


#9

I was going to propose a dropshadow but I fear you guys are gonna kill me … maybe just a 1px border ?


#10

Ok let’ s make the border the same colour of the normal patch background (not the region bg) and say 5-10px wide, then it would look like there is a hole in the region.

I’d like to raise that issue again.
Anything in the pipeline already?
