i find several time follow a cable to check what it is connected to. I think could be a useful upgrade a shortcut that automatically follows the cable showing the connected node in center of the window.

Like: ⌘← show the node where the cable originates inputting in the input pin of the selected node.

And: ⌘→ show the first node receiving data form the selected node. Following + right arrow shows eventual other nodes receiving data form the same node.

Opened for voting.

A quick approximation in the meantime: click on the cable to select it, then command-9 to zoom-to-fit around the cable.

We'd have to figure out how to handle multiple cables connected to a node/port. Let me know if you have any thoughts on this.

One possibility would be to Be able to select all nodes upstream/downstream of a port or node and provide keyboard shortcuts to navigate through them.
