Option to pin the pallette opened thro' short-cut menu

Status: New

I wish to have the option to pin the (relative datatype) pallette opened thro' short-cut menu, like inthe attached snapshot.


The use-case I feel is, most of the times when I want/need to navigate to the related datatype pallette in search of something, suddenly I find that I need more than one function to be used in my next steps of coding. So during those times, pinning is a viable & useful option.


Hope some of the folks would agree with me... Smiley Happy

I implemented the shortcut palettes. At the time, I wanted to put the pin on them, but the architecture of the popup menus made that a considerably harder problem, so rather than delay the feature for a release, I decided to forego the pins. I never returned to that project, but I definitely wish someone would. I agree this is an excellent idea and will add my kudos.

Hi Mathan,


I think you have misunderstood the idea I have suggested. I know you can open & pin multiple pallettes on the BD. It exists in earlier versions of LV too. Smiley Happy


What I have proposed is the ability to pin the pallette that is opened thro' the rt-click short-cut menu option by navigating to the most relative datatype pallette, when we rt-click on a wire or a control. We can open only one pallette at a time when we do a rt-click on a wire or control.
