Would it be possible to make the node descripitions available from the Node repository, for example by performing a right mouse click on a node. Instead of first dragging a node into a workflow, sometimes connecting it to some input, and then right click to configure the node, and then click the question mark.
Or is there already a faster way to get there?
There is a dedicated view (which should also be visisble from KNIME's default UI configuration): In case it is hidden, go to View -> Node Description. It will update whenever you select a node either in the workflow or the Node Repository.
Probably that was one of the first screens I closed, as it becomes quiet crowded when that is turned on. I like the pop-up concept when going through configure -> question mark, since I don't want it for every node there is, because of course I learned about quiet a few nodes already.
