    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.

    Update 13 September 2019 (v2.0.0):
    • Feature: Node size cache is saved to file and reused when project is opened
    • Feature: Added selective formatting command (Shift-F): If multiple nodes are selected: format selected nodes. If only 1 selected node: format the node tree to the right
    • Bug fix / Improvement: Fixed bug with faster formatting setting. This setting should have much better perfomance for computers with low specs
    • Bug fix: Fix crash related to ed graph formatting algorithm

    Hi Scionate, could you confirm If I understood the issue correctly.

    Do you mean that the viewport moves from the last time it was opened. So you have to move the viewport back to where you want it to?

    This happens when a node is too large to fit in the graph. You need to resize the window for the plugin to correctly calculate the size of the node. Dragging the tab "Add Character Icon" into its own window is the easiest way. I will add this warning into the known issues and workarounds.

    Hi Wijat, I've made an issue for this bug. Could you provide some more information over there? https://github.com/fpwong/BlueprintAssistWiki/issues/10

    Good idea !

    What I meant is if I want to format the nodes in green, currently I have to unlink the first node and use the shortcut F.

    Hi Ultium, could you clarify what the behavior of 'formatting the selected node' would be? The command I'm thinking would be something like "format only selected nodes".

    For a node chain A-B-C-D you would select B-C and it would only format those two nodes, while not moving A and D.
