trigger feature request : automatic displacement of cables when adding outlets

May 6, 2011 | 11:26 am


As many people on this forum I suppose, I am using the trigger object to be sure some events are triggered in a specific order, with sometimes many outlets for a single object.

Wouldn’t be possible to modify trigger’s behaviour (possibly with a specific option) so that it would automatically shift the output cables righwards when a new argument is inserted between existing arguments ?

That would be great, not only for trigger, but for all those "number of parameters determines number of outlets" objects. route and select come to mind as well…
Or another option would be to get those handles for reconnection with multiple selected patch cords as well. Then you could move a bunch of them at the same time. As they have the same distance anyway I don’t see a problem to do that.
Might be easier to implement, and would have the advantage that it would work with any object with multiple outlets/inlets…

that would truly be a great addition

This would be a massive time save. +1

Yes, +1 to both ideas!
