First of all thanks for the great piece of software you developed!
However, by using version 1.83.04 i’ve got some ideas to improve the usability of the Builder which I wanted to share.
- In the Flow for large experiments it becomes cumbersome to add new routines and loops into the flow. Imagine a flow already exist with lets say 20 Routines and you want to add a new routine on position 19 or between to specific routines at the end of the flow. If you scale the flow view down you are not able to the the names of the routines so you cant figure out where to put the new one. So the only way as far as I know it is to scroll to the left klick on insert new routine and scroll all the way to the place where you want to set the new routine. If you need to do that a couple of times it becomes a bit cumbersome.
My idea would be to have either a hotkey for that (there is a hotkey new routine but the new routine is not added to the flow) or in the flow part of the builder put the insert routine and insert loop into a new part so that it is always visible and usable.
- Also in the flow part it would be nice to have a function to copy a loop with its content and rename it. Would save some time and also avoid errors.
- Also in the flow part imagine a large experiment which shall be reused but some routines and/or loops shall be in a different order. It would be great if there would be a function to shift parts of the flow to the left or right in the flow. To my knowledge at the moment you need to delete routines/loops and do everything again. Well not totally the routine is still there and you can insert it at the new place but the loops you need to insert and configure again.
I could find a roadmap or something similar to check whether such ideas would be adressed and in the changelog for 1.84 as well.
I hope I described everything in a way it is understandable.
