Workflow Points of Interest

So while working through a workflow that takes up a bunch of canvas space, I find myself jumping between two points, one at the beginning and one at the end. Every time I need to jump to the other point, I have to zoom out and scroll over and down and then zoom back in. 


What if there was a tool that you could drop on the canvas as a "point of Interest" that if you select it (perhaps) on some other part of the interface, takes you right to that spot in the workflow. I know that currently you can look up tools and it will take you to the location of the tool, but it can be difficult when you are jumping around 4 or 5 different spots to remember which tool number is which.


I would use this all the time!


Just a thought

Chiming in here to say this would be a really useful feature. I currently use browse tools as bookmarks for a large segmented workflow: I place a browse tool with no input, and then change the tool name to be whatever I want it to be, and stick it in a disabled container. Then I can find it in find and replace, and jump there.


But...I'd prefer not to need a workaround 😊


Thanks for the idea - consider it upvoted from me!
