Any plans to add this capability to a future version of labview?
I turn on the label to all objects in the block diagram, including primatives. It's the only way I can read the block diagram. I hate glancing back and forth to the "context help" to understand how a VI work, and if I print the block diagram, then I can still understand it. This also greatly reduces the additional comments that I have to add to the block diagram as the labels act as comments.
Well, after 2 people think this would be useful 5.5 years apart, It could be submitted as a usability enhancement on the Idea exchange. I personally don't think it will gain much traction but- NI does like to make LabVIEW approachable.
Go for it and post the idea
Oh, I was just asking.
NI has enough big things to fix with LV2010 and other assorted tools, (and software installation time).
They don't need to be spending time on little things like this that are easily worked around.
