    Hello, I'm generally enjoying the plugin, it's great when quickly throwing down blueprint, tidying up as I go.
    The per graph type config is a great idea, look forward to that once I nail down my own preferences.

    Two issues I've encountered:

    Comment boxes are ignored by the arrangement.
    Description: When auto arranging nodes, if I have nodes in a comment box the comment box the comment box is left behind and the nodes move out of it.
    Expected Behaviour: The comment box would ideally be treated as its own graph and then after all comment boxes are resolved (may resize) then the comment boxes are treated as nodes within the remaining graph layout solve.
    I see there could be issues with this, it would get tricky with multiple output links from one comment box.

    When connecting a node it may move out of view.
    Expected Behaviour: Move the editor view to centre on the node that was was connected to, or at least move view to keep it on screen.

    Thanks,
    Ben

      Hello,

      At first, I'm grateful you enjoy my plugin, and thanks for your comment.

      When I was working on my plugin, I thought that auto-move-comment should be a really good feature (and it seems I was right).
      Then I tried to implement it but the problem was that the place of the comment were updating on command but not the size (only on node creation).
      It's really hard to find informations on plugin creation (since not a lot of people are doing this).

      I was really busy (looking for a job and a home) but now I have time and I'm motivated to improve my plugin for UE4.23 (and previous versions of course).

      For the move of editor view, I never thought about it and I found it's a great idea, I take note and if I'll warn if I can't made it.

      Again thanks for enjoying my plugin,
      Bstt


      By the way, sorry for this late answer, I didn't have any notification (since I forget to suscribe).
