View Full Version : dragging / connecting nodes problem.

12-02-2007, 02:39 AM
Hi all,

I have this problem when working in the node editor. I have browsed through the manual but had a hard time doing so because my head already felt like exploding.

So, on to the problem:
I cannot connect nodes anymore. When I put my mouse on the connection and I start dragging I'm just dragging the node around. I have a gut feeling it has something to do with a key I hit but for the life of me I cannot find the solution. I restarted LightWave but that didn't work so that's another reason why I think I must have pushed a wrong button (read: shortcut key).

Can anyone shed some light on this because my own light on the subject died out 5 minutes ago.

Hah, found it myself. Invoking the dragging: hit key "a" and removing the dragging hit key "q".

You sure?
"a" selects all nodes, and shouldn't change your ability to connect nodes.
"q" toggles zoom between 100% and 50%, and you can only connect nodes when you have zoomed to 100%. :)

Hmmm, I changed keyboards and now the keys work like you said and the problem doesn't occur anymore. Weirdest thing I ever seen so far.
