For a long time I didn't use
Only when I started multiple tabs did they become viable and I saw their use.
Between tabs is a given for them as you can't put a wire between different tabs.
link nodes, I have established a couple of rules. I may post them in another thread.
So, I have a
link out node connected to a
link in node on another tab.
I select the
link out node and an orange link appears showing the links to other tabs.
To get to them, you click on the desired link name and the editor jumps to that tab.
Alas this doesn't work if the links are all on the same tab.
Now, usually if it is on the same tab, they aren't needed. But as I have since learnt: That doesn't always hold true.
Usually flows start in the top left corner and grow from there.
This is because the node's
in is on the left and the
out is on the right.
So as the flow progresses, you connect an
out to the next node's
in. Thus it goes from left to right.
Now and then you need a wire to go from the right to the left.
Not a bit problem, but sometimes aesthetics come in and those wires going the wrong way don't look too nice.
In those cases you use the
Well, if the flow is big - as in: big - it could be a fair distance.
An option to go to the other end of a link even if it is on the same tab.
This may require not so much the node to allow this, but the virtual wire. But I think that wouldn't be possible because of the nature of how that part works.
So similar to when the link is to another tab:
A small tree pops up listing all the connections.
Local and remote.
Local links are also shown similar to remote links, but then virtual wire then exits the text and continues to the other
link node on the same tab.
So the internal link would go through a box similar to the one shown in red then continue to it's node.
Maybe the box could be solid rather than dashed, but I think that is more an aesthetic thing than a practical thing.
That the virtual wire would exit the right side should be enough of an indication it is on the same tab.
