Create new composition when clicking Vuo icon (when already open)

For example if the Vuo editor is running and you close a composition, you have to go to "create new composition".

In Sketch or mac apps like Pages or Numbers, when you click on the already opened app in the dock and it has no active window, it creates a blank or a template window.

Having the same in Vuo would be a non urgent but cool thing.
Perhaps open either a default blank or a template window with protocols or normal blank composition you'd just have to choose.

Scrollable Port Popups

Often I use the port popup (click one port) to get information, for example a path or some text etc.

Problem is the preview often is too short and I end up using a Console Window :(

Could it not just be but scrollable ? Like preview 3 lines instead of one and scroll the rest if more ?

For example here below if the url was way larger I could horizontal scroll it, if it had several lines (tree) I could vertical scroll it :

I know there are also these yellow notepad like popups that sometimes come up (haven't understand when they do and when they not) and that display more info already, which is great, but a longer one could still require scroll.

Plus A - I think the port popup looks better then the yellow pad and B - we have port popups + yellow popups = 2 popups. And C - The port popups can be floated which can be great too sometimes.

Of course I assume popovers are rendered only when opened so I guess that would not affect the editor performance.

Employ OS X Finder searches in File > Open Composition

Be nice to have robust system wide searches with names, fragments, tags, etc., for .vuo files, like QC.

QC equivalent: 

File > Open > Finder search

Optional "Points Grid" for the editor canvas

As shown below, an optional "points grid" for the canvas editor (beside the Line Grid).

Height/width of the dots set to something like 3 pixels / points (3x the grid line size). Positioned at every line crossing point.

Replace all connected output cables at once

Hey guys.

Wouldn't it save much time if we could replace all the output connected cables from a node in ONE drag instead of reproducing the thing as often as there are connected cables ?

Happens quite often to me. In QC i would add an output splitter and connect the new node to the splinter but that adds an extra splitter which isn't the best in term of speed.

One way I could imagine this to happen would be by dragging a output cable onto the output port of the node you want to replace (see video below where the magenta "Make color layer" would connect to all the "Render layers to Image" nodes at once by replacing all the old cyan "Make text layer" cables) (Doing "A" would automatically make "B" on the image below).

May be another way of doing this but think this one's pretty handsome.

What you think ?

QC equivalent: 

Somehow the Output splitter but even better
