There may be a way to accomplish this that I’m not thinking of, but I’ve been searching the forum like crazy trying to figure it out.
Is there a way to freeze an object such that patch cord connections can be made, but the object cannot be moved? On one hand, being able to patch when the patcher is locked would be nice, but being able to leave the patch unlocked without worrying about the inlets/outlets being moved would be just as handy.
This is basically for the creation of a patch-bay-like system for a patch.
It would also be fantastic if you could hide connections, but still make new ones with some modifier key used. Probably not an option, but man, sometimes it would be great to connect things without all the other cords being visible.
Though after experimenting, it looks like you can select all cords (after Hide Foreground) and then turn them all transparent… then they can’t be seen or even clicked, and you can make new ones. Cool. To see them again you need to Select All, then use Color… from the menu, since you can’t click them to get the popup menu.
