Wish Shortcuts to connect blocks

cmd + arrow keys could help to connect blocks without using the mouse.

1) For example, selecting this Cab block, cmd+left arrow would connect the Cab to the Amp block, and cmd+right arrow would connect it to the Out1 block.

2) In the case that the block selected has no block at the right side, hitting cmd+right arrow would create a Shunt block at the right, and connect the selected block to the Shunt.

3) cmd+arrow up/down would connect to the block in the upper/lower row. If there is no block there, it would create a Shunt and establish the connection.

EDIT:
4) Row Connection
  • Shift+cmd+left arrow: Perform the action "Connect from this block to the first block in this row"
  • Shift+cmd+right arrow: Perform the action "Connect from this block to the last block in this row"
For example, with the input block selected, pressing shift+cmd+right arrow would connect all blocks from In1 to Out1:

it's a good idea really and everytime I connect blocks I'm annoyed, thinking there should really be a key command instead of draging little connection lines...

Yes, same feeling when I have to connect blocks.
And worse feeling everytime I move one and it gets disconnected... 🤣

Added shortcut for connecting the selected block with all the blocks in the same row (from selected block to first block or from selected block to the last one)
