In Place Element Structure - add element from tunnel

Status: New

When setting up In Place Element structures, the current work flow is:

 

  • Drop the structure
  • Right click, add the node you want
  • Wire the reference / array / variant in

It would also be nice to wire the references I want to use to the border of my IPE structure, right click on the tunnel (c.f. for and while loop auto-indexing context, or shift register/tunnel) and select from a sensible list of incoming element types relevant to my incoming wire.

This would be fantastic to see alongside similar ideas such as this or this.

I implemented a shortcut menu plug-in for this feature. You can download it here:

Darren's tool still has some rough edges, and we're late in the 2018 dev cycle, so we aren't going to put it in the upcoming release, but I'll put it on the list of things to consider for 2019.
