Canvas, as the backdrop where all workflow nodes live, displays the current workflow content, ready to be further modified.


Node size - all nodes have a standard size, except Tool Nodes, whose size is determined by the number of parameters.

Selecting Node - done by single-click. Thereafter other functions, in the Right Sidebar and CLI, become available based on Node Type (Tool/Script/Splitter).

Moving Node - done simply by clicking on it and dragging it across Canvas.

Removing Node - done with the Backspace or Delete keyboard button.

Connecting two nodes - done by dragging from the output port of one Node to the input port of another Node. Ports represents input and output Node parameters. More thoroughly shown in Building a Workflow.

Disconnecting two nodes - done by single-click on connection, after which connection becomes red, and using the Backspace or Delete keyboard button.

Searching nodes by name - zoom in on the workflow view on a specific node using the search box located in the upper right corner of the Canvas. The search box is accessible either by CTRL/CMD+F option or by clicking on the search icon.
