Hi,

There are many nodes in my sop network. But I only concentrate several nodes and often switch flags between them to see the result.
Now I must scroll and pan repeatly and it takes much of my time.
Are there any tips for quickly switch node flag between favorite nodes in a large network?
Or some thing like the Ctrl+1,2,3.. quick mark but apply to nodes?


Thanks!

You can use Python to do this, and set up Shelf tools with hotkeys.

hou.node("/obj/geo1/sphere1").setDisplayFlag(True)
hou.node("/obj/geo1/sphere1").setRenderFlag(True)

For two nodes, you can select them and store a quickmark with Ctrl+1, etc., since it saves the selection. You can then restore it and press R to flip the render flag between them.
