    [RELEASED] Blueprint Assist Plugin

    Would you say your most pressed hotkey is align left and straighten connections?
    Is your OCD turning your "this will only take 5 minutes" task into an hour long blueprint artwork?

    Well the blueprint assist plugin might just be for you!
    LINKS: Marketplace | Wiki

    This plugin provides automatic formatting and mouse-free node editing when working with blueprints.

    As someone who has been using blueprints for the past 2-3 years, I started creating this plugin with two goals in mind:
    1. Save developers hundreds of hours otherwise spent aligning, positioning and straightening blueprint nodes
    2. Quality of life keyboard shortcuts which avoid tedious mouse usage (constant disconnecting and reconnecting)
    And so the plugin includes these 3 major features:
    1. Automatic node formatting: A command to format nodes into nice readable, aligned form. Including a format all symbols command.
    2. Mouse-free blueprint controls: Keyboard shortcuts for node navigation, creation and linking
    3. Quality of life functionality: Useful commands such as Link Nodes Between Wires, Replace node with, Disconnect execution, and more

    For more animated examples, check out this page of the wiki

    AutoSizeComments plugin
    The Blueprint Assist plugin has very simple support for comment boxes. I strongly suggest you download my other free plugin, AutoSizeComments.
    It forces your comment boxes to snap to contained nodes and adds support for color presets.

                Wire to drag sounds useful! From what I've seen it's not possible to access the dragging functions from a plugin, will have another look though.
                But I will have a hotkey which connects selected nodes, achieving a similar affect.

                The context menu buttons I have no idea if I can access that, will look into it.

                Currently thinking either $15 or $20. Also might look into getting a dev grant and putting it into the engine. This way I could also add other features which aren't possible in a plugin

                  As soon as I saw this, I thought it would make sense to try to get it into the engine. Glad to see your dev grant app for that. Hope they take notice. /luck.

                        You're the anti-spaghetti lord. May dev grant funds rain upon you.

                            00:06 into the video, you can already count me in.

                            And even more since it's already the same ordering way I use (pure nodes below functions).
