I noticed by accident there is a key-command for navigating the selection of an object through the patcher.(puh i'm sure something's wrong about that sentence, sorry not native english) You know what i mean? On OSX Try pressing Command and navigate with the Arrow keys. great!
What i would really love is to be able to also select inlets and outlets of objects with the keyboard and being able to actually patch only by the use of the keyboard.
I mean graphical programming is great, and i hate text oriented programming, because it seems to me that the Learning curve is a lot steeper. Or maybe i'm just more the visual type in terms of thinking about problems. But once you know a programming language fairly well, having to use the mouse to create connections is really slowing down some processes. I mean even if i have a large patcher, i think it would be a big help to be able skip through objects and their inlets and outlets one by one. It's just like typing a text on a computer. Sometimes it's great to have a mouse around to be able to "point" the courser to a specific location in the text, maybe a mistake one made. But mostly one will stay at the Keyboard and navigate with arrows, alt+arrows, page up, page down etc.
I think this would be a huge advantage..
Does something like that exist already? (haven't looked at the maxtoolbox for a while, since it caused crashes some time ago. has it in the meanwhile become something like that?)
What do you think?
