Reset nodes' datatypes when copied in the Editor and cables are removed.

I often option drag say a Process List node and go to rewire it and it wont accept the cables. I am guessing* that this is something to do with the nodes auto-converting to the node variant particular input and output data type.

When nodes are locked to some datatype there could be some visual indication on the node, a symbol or something/anything. When copied nodes should revert to a state as a newly instanced node from the node library. Unless they've been copied with other nodes and still wired to these other nodes.

Please change the FR title to better reflect this request and the underlying issues if this FR is in fact relevant.

Alastair commented on Bodysoulspirit's Feature Request, “Scrollable Port Popups

Yes scrollable and also condense the info in less verbose and white-space hungry way if at all possible without losing important info. I'm think here of layer lists. I don't need all the details just to recognise which elements are where in a list, i.e. has the previous node done what it was supposed to.

Make Keyboard modifiers conform to OS X Finder and App conventions in Editor

Holding down Shift Key while drawing a marquee in the editor should toggle the selection state of all nodes the overlap the area selected. Currently as soon as one clicks in the Editor comp window while holding the Shift Key down whatever is selected is deselected before one can add or subtract from the selection of nodes.

Command Key held down while marqueeing could just select wires not the nodes… but not sure that's hugely useful, still not a big Vuo user so probably have more opinions in time to come.

How do I rotate a Text Layer?!

Very simple ask, answer not obvious (which doesn't speak well to Vuo's user friendliness… I taught myself QC for weeks without discovering Kineme forums and QC list to ask questions).

Using either the Transform Layer inputs or a dedicated Make 2D transform node i can only get the text layer to translate (X, Y), not scale, and not rotate.
