    Lightbulb More ideas to pilfer from the B-word : consider this a FREQ

    Take a look at the possibilities within the B node editor, showcased at this point:

    IMO node users need every opportunity to make their networks understandable to co-workers and THEMSELVES when they come back to them. These kinds of facilities illustrated would be good, especially for Compound Nodes.

    Of course, there's many LHF features that LWG could EASILY, VERY EASILY implement (perhaps 2019 has them already):

    • notation 'nodes', or 'text only nodes' whose only purpose would be to help document the network
    • a toggle to TEMPORARILY revert node names to their default so that you could see what a node actually is although you've renamed it
    • disable/able switches for all inputs



    And many others I've posted in the past. Not rocket-science stuff, just better UI and self-documentation opportunities.
    They only call it 'class warfare' when we fight back.

    I agree. A documentation or text node would be very helpful!

    Notes can be added to all nodes. Not the greatest but it does help.

    If you look at the docs, we have a tutorial by Joe Lertola where he uses unconnected nodes with edited names for documenting his node networks.

    Thanks - maybe we need a "Comment" node.

    How about an "Attribution" node, which when saved within a compound populates the metadata of the compound file with attribution info in the node.
