I just can't help it

    Feature request:
    An option to have in- and outlets of a selected object spaced independent of the size of the object, i.e. always 2 pixels.
    Yep, that means that if the object is longer than (amount of outlets * outlet size + (amount of outlets - 1) * spacer size), the object box will have a tail without outlets.

      I am not sure if thats a good idea, it will certainly make debugging a lot more painful. And it has only visual advantages. I guess thats the reson why you want it, have the allignement of patchchords always at the same point. But you can easily achive this already:

      What to do if the box is smaller than would fit with the number of outs? I assumed they have to be cut off then, but the size could also be limited to a minimum I guess...

      Yea, that's the way I see it. Similar to the current implementation.
