Copy Node and Duplicate Cables

Sometimes I have a Node with multiple Cables connected. I'd love a time-saving method to duplicate the existing Node and Cable connections.

For example, perhaps this is an extension of the usual duplicate/paste methods:

  • Menubar option 'Duplicate with Cables'
  • Shift + Option + D
  • Option + Shift + Drag
  • Paste with Cables by Command + Option +V

In this image example, I would want to duplicate the Make Time-Date node, which I am using a set of alarm per day.

Component: 

Popovers for selected cables

When a cable is selected, some information is shown about it in the info panel. This would be similar to selecting a node, which shows info on this node. For a cable, this could be data type, event throttling.It might additionally include a simple version of Console, if possible. For example, showing the last 5 data points etc—saving the user from attaching a Console node for debugging purposes.

This panel could also expose the same right-click functionality, including 'Insert Share'.

Hold Command modifier to drag cable from OUTPUT of node

Problem: Often I need to change a cable coming out of one node, to instead come out of a different node.

Currently, dragging from the output port of a node will always spawn a new cable.

Suggestion: Hold Command on commencement of drag should grab the existing (last added) cable end, from the END of a node.

Hold Z to zoom to selection area

Coming from a design background, I'm pretty well trained to hold down the Z key, and marquee select the area I want to zoom to. This is how Photoshop, Sketch, Figma etc. works.

Therefor I often unconsciously hold down Z and select an area with the hope of zooming into that area.

Would love support for that!
