Branching a new discussion based on some user feedback and some comment from Jaymie on the redesign topic Jaymie's comment regarding Data Types.
Can be disturbing for new users. The fact that once a data type is set for some nodes, you have to manually reset it before being able to connect another type.
This could lead to people thinking you cannot connect such type to that node.
The thing is I wouldn't want the Editor to replace by default the type because as for some other nodes, the convert type or choose value from type can be handy.
In other words, the more control the better?
a - Random List to Curve (with type set to 3D Point).
This is great ! This is what I mean with more control !
Perhaps in this case, below the first options, we could just get a "(Re)set Curve to Real Type" option.
b - 3D object Type to 3D Point.
For stuff that have no common stuff and where you couldn't reuse any part, the same menu as before could roll down with an option "set type to 3D object".
c - Share value issue.
This I don't understand.
A shared 3D point to a "Make Random Value" automatically chooses the x value for me it seems.
While it is so great to be able to choose and have control 'like mentioned above), here I seem not to be able.
To resume, no less control, more control, more options, but a simplified to reset as a dropdown option perhaps !?
