I commonly find myself in this situation and its hard to imagine that I'm the only one:
Let's say that I have a Text Input tool which feeds to various other tools across the canvas. Some are near, some are far; but the point is that there are more than one of them.
Even though I've been using this workflow a while, one of the data sources downstream changed and now I need to change the field type or do some other sort of cleansing on the text I'm feeding in. What do you normally do when you need to add a tool inline, but the connections run to several points on the page?
Normally I'd start adding Select tools to each of the connections.
But wouldn't it be efficient if I could just right click on the tool and select an option like "Add a tool inline"?
It would work sort of like when you right click on the canvas to add a tool; but it would put the new tool in the place where the current one is and just move the tool you clicked on behind the newly added tool. No more adding multiple Select tools and re-connecting each stream.
