Hi,

Is it possible to un-allign cables?

Cheers

Clicking on parts of the cable will remove the nearest kink in the line. It can be useful when you want parts of it to be diagonal; it also lets you stretch the line in interesting ways.

But I don’t know how to un-align the entire cable at once. Would love to know.

This has never happened for me. Do you have to hold a modifier key? Clicking on a patch cord just selects the cord, and clicking parts of a kinked cord let me move it horizontally/vertically, but not remove a kink.

Figured it out – on a mac, command-option-click on a segment to remove it and create a diagonal line to the next nearest kink.

Hey, never knew that. It’s not that awesome, when there are only two segments, you do have to command-click on the second segment only to remove the kink. Doesn’t seem like alt has any effect.

It’s reasonably annoying to use, however, as the command-click on background will lock your patch when you misclick only slightly. Do many people use command-click on background? I find i do it only by accident, i’d prefer space bar to lock my patch.
