Wish Block Insertion Improvement

Inserting a block into the signal chain is a bit clunky. You have to drag blocks aside, one at a time, to make room, which sometimes breaks connections, then put the new block into the vacated space and then reconnect the blocks. That can be a real flow killer when you want to quickly try out an idea that requires insertion of a block.

It would be a big help if it worked like this:



In addition, for the simple case where you're working with a single row and you drag a block to be inserted and there isn't enough room for an additional column, it would be a big help if AxeEdit automatically put in the send/return and wrapped to another row automatically.

And please make the default return value 100%. Even after all this time, it still takes me a minute to figure out why my AxeFX goes silent after inserting a send/return :).

So your ears don't go silent permanently (or ringing) by accidentally creating a nasty feedback loop.

Sure, but I'm saying set it to 100% in the case I described where AxeEdit is automatically doing a row wrap. There's no risk of feedback in that situation.

The bottom line is: Inserting a block is a simple conceptual task from the user's point of view. And, it's a simple operation from a logical point of view (Trust me, I've implemented this very thing in audio applications :)). So, it should be a simple task to perform from the GUI.

+1 - The ability to select and then drag multiple blocks would be a big improvement. Can't be that much of a coding issue. Would make a big difference to building/editing presets.

Just my $.02

Selecting and moving multiple blocks is somewhat different from what this thread is about. Inserting a block like in my video above eliminates the need to move blocks aside to make room for a new block.

Moving multiple blocks might be useful in other contexts though, so I’d suggest starting a new wish thread with your idea.

In any case, yes, this would be a simple thing to implement.
