Nodes are wired together by pressing the left-mouse button on a node’s port, dragging to the destination node and releasing the mouse button.
Alternatively, if the
Ctrl/Command key is held down, the left-mouse
button can be clicked (and released) on a node’s port and then clicked on the
destination. If the
Ctrl/Command key remains held and the just-wired destination
node has an output port, a new wire is started from that port. This allows a
set of nodes to be quickly wired together.
This can also be combined with the Quick-Add dialog that is triggered
Ctrl/Command-Click on the workspace to quickly insert new nodes and have
them already wired to previous nodes in the flow.
If a node with both an input and output port is dragged over the mid-point of a wire, the wire is draw with a dash. If the node is then dropped, it is automatically inserted into the flow at that point.
To disconnect a wire from a port, select the wire by clicking on it, then
press and hold the
Shift key when the left-mouse button is pressed on the port.
When the mouse is then dragged, the wire disconnects from the port and can be
dropped on another port. If the mouse button is released over the workspace,
the wire is deleted.
If a port has multiple wires connected to it, if none of them is selected when
button is pressed with the
Shift key held, all of the wires will move.
You can also select multiple wires by holding
Ctrl/Command while clicking on them.
When you select multiple nodes, we also highlight any wires between them. This can make it easier to follow a flow once you have selected it.
Ctrl/Command, click on the other wires.
You can also remove wires by slicing through them. You do this by pressing and holding the
Alt/Option key, then dragging with the left-mouse button pressed:
You can delete a node from the middle of a flow and have the wiring automatically repair itself in the background:
You can also detach a node from the flow without deleting it:
* There is no default shortcut for Detach Node from wires, but you can assign one yourself in the Keyboard pane of the Settings dialog.
