Search help

  • Simple searches use one or more words. Separate the words with spaces (cat dog) to search cat,dog or both. Separate the words with plus signs (cat +dog) to search for items that may contain cat but must contain dog.
  • You can further refine your search on the search results page, where you can search by keywords, author, topic. These can be combined with each other. Examples
    • cat dog --matches anything with cat,dog or both
    • cat +dog --searches for cat +dog where dog is a mandatory term
    • cat -dog -- searches for cat excluding any result containing dog
    • [cats] —will restrict your search to results with topic named "cats"
    • [cats] [dogs] —will restrict your search to results with both topics, "cats", and "dogs"

[Feature Request] Hotkeys for node creation / blueprint context menu

So this feature is essentially the hotkeys for mind-maps, as seen in this video.

The reason is to eliminate the need for using the mouse for every node you create (aka: "I do not want to get carpal tunnel").

The simplest feature to allow for this is a hotkey for the blueprint context menu. With this inplace the workflow for node creation would look something like this:

  1. Select a node

  2. Press the blueprint context menu hotkey

  3. Search and select your node in the context menu

  4. New node will be created and the input exec pin will be connected to the previous node

  5. Go to step 2

So with this workflow you can create a chain of nodes without having to touch the mouse. Once you're done you can get your mouse an connect up the pins.
