Insert node with context menu option on ports

You would be able to right-click on a port and choose from a menu of compatible nodes. The chosen node would be added to the canvas with a cable connecting it to the port.

Like Insert node between other nodes, this feature request intends to provide a convenient way to insert a node onto the canvas. The difference is that the other feature request is for dropping a node onto a cable or port, whereas this one is for a context menu on ports.

Editable Value fields on Editor canvas to increase in scale when view is zoomed in beyond actual size.

Sometimes I zoom in to read the small expressions in Calculate nodes, especially at night time. While the expression in the canvas is enlarged as you zoom in (but truncated), if you double click the field to edit it, the text is still the small size as per an "actual size" zoom magnification. SO it's still hard to read on a big screen for me at night a fair distance from my eyes.

As illustrated below.

Shortcut to follow a cable

Hi,

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: + left arrow show the node where the cable originates inputting in the input pin of the selected node.

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

Composition Loader apps have the name in Finder Dock

Although we have the window title of composition run/view windows set to the files name automatically, they all appear as "VuoCompositionLoader" and I can't remember which one is which because Dock always juggles things around.

Be good to have the app process name changed to file name, or even just VuoCompLoader1, VuoCompLoader2,… if that is less work. It's a minor request but would help. I tend to have several compositions running to help me understand how a particular node or combination of nodes works when I'm working on a bigger composition.

I use ⌘⇧R to achieve this ATM, but involves a time wait and reset state penalty.

Detached Port Popovers with enhanced behavioral attributes

As I'm learning Vuo still, popovers are one of my favourite debugging and WTFing tools in Vuo. I'd just like them to behave a bit more orderly.

I'd like detached popovers to

  1. Maintain minimum size unless size has been adjust (currently we cannot adjust their window size)
  2. Be size adjustable to see more data at times (less important)
  3. When opened, moved, closed, opened again: return to the previous (user preferred) moved position at least until I quit Vuo.

I arrange a series of popovers on the screen and they are watching lists, and i've deliberately made the lists short so I can see what is going on through the composition as I adjust an input value. Then I make the lists quite long (maybe by accident maybe intentionally) and either way when I return to short lists, the windows don't shrink to small windows again and they're all on top of each other. If I close popover tear offs, when I reopen them I need to reposition them.

I realise they stay at the bigger size possibly to stop them constantly adjusting size and slowing the editor down, so perhaps a one second delay could occur before returning to a minimally appropriate size?

Bigger lists they expand: https://vuo.org/sites/default/files/styles/media_thumbnail/public/featur...

Sorry don't know what is going on with those tiny thumb images when you click the links. I uploaded screenshots, what happened after that i dont know :-)
