Damn, surely I tried that ... obviously not. Thanks. So that is the solution, but why is there different behaviour of text input between nodes, seems confusing.

As written here Option to edit subcomposition without affecting other instances — Group nodes just for organization, not for adding to Node Library, there will likely be 3 kind of sub compositions, global (the ones we have now), local, the same as now, added to the library but where the changes made will only affect this sub-composition and somehow a real local sub-composition, actually simply a group of nodes, more like the QC sub-macro.

While the last one, real local group of nodes will allow seamless exports for sharing (as Jaymie mentionned here : Ability to create composition-local subcompositions, for the others I don't know either.
I know there is this feature request about being able to use sub-compositions not located only in the user modules : allow modules to load from user and system folders from inside sub-folders, so I guess you could somehow link to them with the url like an image and bundle them in a folder with the composition using paths.

But I have always wondered if in the end compositions could not be some kind of bundles, like apps actually, with a part of them having the code, but that we could also bundle sub-compositions (password protected or not ((see Feature Request about protected compositions for sale purposes)), modules, images, movies, fonts etc).
These would be absolute shareable compositions.

Hi @Paul use option-return to break the line, like in a spreadsheet

this composition draw a cosmic web to deference point(from snapshot image).

this compositon has 3 windows and 1 syphon output.

parhaps you can use to your instaration without other software, but i recomend combination with mapping software(ex. madmapper).

Management of sub-compositions

A question and suggestion.

How do people handle sub-composition when it comes to distributing compositions. For example, I might have a number of subcompositions I've created and use regularly, they are located in my node library. When it comes time to pass the composition I'm working on to others it is easy to miss a required subcomposition ... or just time consuming to find them and test.

Suggestion, a new save or export choice which has an "include sub compositions" option.

@pbourke posted a new Feature Request, “sinks and sources

sinks and sources

An observation ... when creating compositions I find clear layout is crucial. I find myself clumping functional units together, eg: IO section, display section and so on. Then occasionally one want to connect one part with a distant other part which often involves connections passing under nodes and immediately seems to make things messy, especially when the source or destination cannot be seen on the screen at once. This confusion also arises from links connections from the right to the left in a composition, eg: those pesky window request frame connections.

What I think would be "nice" would be a node that acts as a "sink" for data+events and another node that acts as a "source". These would be associated together by an id, or better a name. They could of course be colour coded ... seems to me this could be used to add clarity to larger compositions.

@pbourke posted a new Question, “Editing text nodes

Is there a way around the following, or a good explanation why it is this way ....

The GLSL shader has a "text" input which one can enter text, sure not a full editor but one can manage/choose to use that or something external. BUT, nodes like "Append texts" while it also has a "text" input does not allow the same editing, for example I cannot use the return key to create a new line.

Nice ! Especially like when the glowing dots+line come in play ;)
