Is there a way to show the components’ labels/names, like this?
this works well.
Thanks! Found “bifocals” but not this… cheers
Sun glasses probably won’t do what you want in this case:
The way I typically do it is to put the slider into a Group and just type in the “topic” as the name of the Group, like so:
If you Right Click on the Group and select Color, you can even make the Group invisible and so only the text will show:
Results in clear and clean:
Actually, looking into Sunglasses a bit more, there’s an option to “Display nicknames” - seems to do the trick!
Oh hang on… just found we can label some of the components themselves (with multiple inputs/outputs I guess) by right-clicking on input/output.
Is this bad practice?
Yes, bad practice based on my own early experiments with GH conventions, renaming standard components is a bad idea. Much better to limit custom naming to inputs and outputs, and clusters of course. OOPS! Sorry, that’s exactly what you are doing. DOH! Yes, good practice.
Sunglasses is WAY BETTER than Bifocals and doesn’t impose itself on GH files with invisible labeled groups as Bifocals does.
