This is a detail but it occurs to my mind pretty often.
Currently, if I want to get a node which name consists of multiple words using the Node Repository view, I can choose one of the following strategies. Let’s consider I’m trying to find a node whose name is Table Row To Variable Loop Start.
These searches produce a result containing the name of the desired node:
These don’t although I’d consider very convenient if they would:
tab row to var loop
row to var
… and so on
Node String Manipulation is a good example of a node I search for very often, too. And I always have to type the whole word “String” followed by a number of first letters of the word “manipulation”. It’d be helpful having an option to find the node by typing “str man”.
I could give more examples.
Column Filter: col filter
Reference Row Splitter: ref row sp
And so on.
Finally, to make this topic a bit more “multi-topical” I’d like to suggest two more things here: Favorite nodes and Last/Frequently Used Nodes. Workflow coach is sometimes a highly helpful feature but it’s not always I wanted to put a new node immediately after the currently selected one.
