Allow designating node-paste locations

Post by dgroos » Sun Apr 29, 2018 11:10 am

A capability of cmaptools that I've used constantly over the years is the ability to copy/paste nodes, a big timesaver especially when I've got differently formatted nodes. For years I've wished cmaptools had the ability to designate where the pasted node appears, a function I use constantly when designing layouts in Filemaker Pro.

Works like this:
  1. click on the node you want to copy
  2. Press Command+C (or Control+C in Ubuntu or Windows)
  3. Mouse-click where you want to node to be pasted...
  4. Press Command+V (or etc.)
And the copied node is where it needs to be, ready to edit. This saves a full "relocate" cognitive processing...

Thanks for asking for ideas,

You verbalized what I often thought about, David. I would love this to be implemented!
