Ability to drag and reconnect existing connections.

Hi All,

 

I think it would be good to have the ability to pick a connection and drag and reconnect that to another tool.

 

Following are some of the areas where it might come handy

 

1) In case a tool is there which is having good number of connections and we want to move all connections to a new tool.
In current scenario, I end up deleting my existing connections and then re-establishing those to the new tool.

 

2) In case there is an existing connection which is separated by a good distance on the canvas and we need to move one side of the connection to a tool near to the existing tool.

 

At the moment, I am making use of select tool to save me some effort for above cases, in case of scenarios calling for reconnection, I generally put a dummy select tool and reconnect existing connections to select and then delete the existing connection from tool(to select tool) and repoint connection from new tool to the select.

 

Thanks,
Rohit
