String Manipulation (Multi Column) suggested enhancement

Currently it is not possible to select columns for the String Manipulation (Multi Column) by data type, only by manual selection, wildcard or regex pattern:

It would make the node considerably more useful if it was possible to select by column type, particularly as any selected set of columns is likely to be the argument of a function within the expression and as such likely to be all of the same type.

It would also mean that the node could be re-used by copy-paste or in a component/metanode on different input tables, or when an incoming table spec changes slightly without reconfiguring.

Yours,

It looks like this is already implemented in the Column Filter node:

It could be something similar to add to the String Manipulation (Multi Column)

Yes, indeed. It’s the same dialog component from memory with just some different options specified
