Is there a feature request I can vote on for just QC-style macros, without all the subcomposition saving etc(like I've seen some around)? I honestly don't know how anyone makes anything of any size considering the time it takes to make subcompositions work, just to clean up the workspace. Ideally you could select a bunch of pre-connected nodes, right-click them into a macro and all publishing and cable connections are done for you. It's an absolute must but I haven't found a feature request that describes this. Is there one?

I definitely have asked for this (and even prototyped it in QC in pre-alpha Vuo days because the team didn't think pan within the sub-graph frame it was a good idea at the time), not sure if I made an individual FR though, will search for it.

Here's a Keynote Presentation I made on the issue, it doesn't playback the audio on more recent Keynotes (gotta love Apples work on KN don't you regressing QC comps and a bunch of other stuff), so I've exported as QT movie .

Hi @Jaymie. I kind of thought

Hi @Jaymie. I kind of thought that was what my FR linked to above was all about. See the link for my latest offerings. Does your plan include window in window style of macro or QC style of level shift from parent into child and vise versa? p.s. very pleased to see you mention this is already being worked on.

Another piece — "select a bunch of pre-connected nodes, right-click them into a macro and all publishing and cable connections are done for you" — doesn't have a public feature request, but we're already working on it and are planning to release it in Vuo 1.3.

Wow that is amazing Jaymie !!
