Expanded port value 'tooltips' not move when moving Composition Window when pressing (say) spacebar key

Sometimes i Have a bunch of these open and want to lift my comp window to gain more screen and I'd like to move it without readjusting 4-8 floating pallets every time I move the main window. I understand the reason for anchoring them to the main window, but sometimes it's undesirable, hence the request for a modifier key.

How do you get the current iteration value inside a Process List loop?

I'm looking for the equivalent of Build List output from inside a loop using the Process List node. Or in QC terms, the Iterator Variables patch.

Say I have a list of images and I want to locate them according to the order they appear in the list. (Please note I can't use Arrange in Grid/Row/Column because they either resize the image or position it in a way that isn't suitable to me).

I want to use X position maths like coordinates of (X, 0) where:

  • X = starting_X + (i * spacing / count_of_list)

A way to align a series of text elements without using Arrange Layers b/c it has limitations?

If you have a list of images or texts that are different dimensions it's very hard to align them in an orderly way that doesn't compromise the intent.

In the case of the Arrange Layers in Grid node it scales all the images/texts to be the same size as each (see top row of text in image below).

I'd be interested once I get my skills up to the level I developed in QC :-)

Open Recent Menu is dropping my compositions


Vuo version: 

OS version: 

  • Mac OS 10.10

How severely does this bug affect you?: 

●○○○ — Not much; I'm just letting you know about it.

Steps causing the bug to occur: 

  1. Restart VUO
  2. See if the last few compositions you created are in the Open Recnt> submenu

Have you found a workaround?: 

Yes, just use the Open menu command and find the file.

Other notes: 

Doesn't always happen. THese files were on my root drive so it's not a removable drive issue (which does affect OS X Finder Sidebar shortcuts for example)
