does not show info for node selected via marquee

Steps causing the bug to occur

  1. Place node on Vuo canvas
  2. Marquee-select (click and drag from outside to overtop) this node
  3. Despite this node being highlighted, info panel does not change to show this node

Have you found a workaround?

Click on node again

Other notes

  • Vuo version: 2.3.2
  • macOS version: macOS 11
  • CPU: arm64
  • How severely does this bug affect you? Not much; I’m just letting you know about it.


While this may not be the ideal behavior, there doesn’t seem to be a good alternative. Updating the node documentation panel while you’re dragging the rubberband would be a CPU-intensive task that would potentially make marquee selection sluggish. We recommend the workaround that you suggested of clicking on the node.

Thanks @jmcc

The conflict I see is that the same state (a selected node) has different behaviour based on how it got selected, which breaks the model.
I could see a case to not update in realtime whilst selecting, and of course there’s no support for multiple selections.

Here’s my thinking: on mouseUp, if one node is selected, show the node documentation for it.


Based on your last comment, we’ve looked at this again, and we’ll accept it.
