Composite node

0 votes
I'd love to be able to create a node composed of other existing nodes so that the resulting shape is static but the composants are still adressables individually with arrows by example

Let us know if this is not what you want.

I added the five symbols on the left, drew a marquee around them, right-clicked and selected Group.

I then added the six symbols on the right, drew a marquee, right-clicked and selected Group.

I verified that I could drag the group and the symbols within the group stayed static relative to each other.

Then I drew all the arrows.

Groups Components with Edges

by (150 points)
I've already tried this but what I would have is a new node formed by an aggregate of other nodes. Each part node still reachable by an edge but the resulting node able to be manipulated as a whole

Perhaps by allowing extra labels in a node to be a destination of an edge ?

Sorry for my bad english
