I was wondering whether there is a way to change the properties of multiple nodes simultaneously. For example the "Activate/Deactivate" property or the "ui_grp" property of dashboard nodes.
Currently one has to pick every node one by one and set the property, which becomes cumbersome, when the number of nodes is rising.
Thanks in advance.
You can (apparently) disable nodes which are in a group:
Select the group
Open the Action List (Ctrl-Shift-P)
Search for "disable selected nodes" - select it from the list.
That will disable all of the nodes inside the group.
To enable them, do the same thing, but use the "enable selected nodes" action.
You can also assign your own keyboard shortcuts to those actions under the Keyboard tab of the main Settings dialog.
Edit - Though I don't know how to get the "Action List". For me CTRL SHIFT p when I'm in NR editor opens a new browser window.
I changed the keyboard shortcut. My word, what a long List it is, and in a small not resizeable popup too!
I see that some Actions in the List have keyboard shortcuts. Is it possible to assign a shortcut to En/Disable Selected Nodes?
You can also access the action list via the menu
You can start typing part of the name to filter the action list
You can assign shortcuts to any action in the list.
Thanks a lot regarding the Enabling/Disabling of multiple nodes.
Is there something regarding the second example? Maybe a bit sneaky, but I was hoping to also get a solution for
my other question .
Yes, best config change I've made to Node-RED
I use alt-d to disable and alt-e to enable.
