[Feature Request] Hotkeys for node creation / blueprint context menu

So this feature is essentially the hotkeys for mind-maps, as seen in this video.

The reason is to eliminate the need for using the mouse for every node you create (aka: “I do not want to get carpal tunnel”).

The simplest feature to allow for this is a hotkey for the blueprint context menu. With this inplace the workflow for node creation would look something like this:

  1. Select a node
  2. Press the blueprint context menu hotkey
  3. Search and select your node in the context menu
  4. New node will be created and the input exec pin will be connected to the previous node
  5. Go to step 2

So with this workflow you can create a chain of nodes without having to touch the mouse. Once you’re done you can get your mouse an connect up the pins.
