A cable from a published input can't be dragged from one input port to another

Steps causing the bug to occur

  1. Create a new composition with a some nodes of your choice.
  2. Right click on the any available input port and select Publish Port.
  3. Click on the cable’s handle to drag the cable to a different input port.
  4. Become puzzled… The cable cannot be dragged onto any input port in the composition, including the port to which it was already connected.

And there’s more…

  1. Now create a ```Select Input Event (2)``` node.
  2. Repeat step 2 with both the ```Option 1``` and ```Option 2``` input ports.
  3. Similar to step 3 and 4, try dragging the event cable from the ```Option 1``` to the ```Option 1``` input port.
  4. Remain puzzled...

Have you found a workaround?

For steps 1 to 4, just delete the cable you’re trying to move, and initiate a new one to fit the bill.

For steps 5-8, use another node that can collect many events and sent get them out through the same output port. I like Select Latest with an event-only cable coming from the output port.

Other notes

  • Vuo version: 1.2.1
  • macOS version: OS X 10.11
  • How severely does this bug affect you? It’s annoying but I can work around it.

I also can’t figure out how to drag a cable from a published input. (When I try, it either selects the port (colouring it blue) or resizes the width of the published input area. So it seems its either not an option, or the other behaviours override cable-creation.)

Scheduled for work.

I also can’t figure out how to drag a cable from a published input.

As @Bodysoulspirit pointed out, you have to start the drag just to the right of the published input port.

This was fixed in 1.2.6.
