dandelO's device is the  packing a lot of blue nodes inside a  single node.
Gets a better overview of the functions imbedded in the node.

(I know than dandelO is not the inventor of this, sorry but it is nice to have to have a name)

Gotcha...Group Container the Nodes
something borrowed,
something Blue.
Ring out the Old.
Bring in the New

I do a lot of packing, but especially for novices that won't make it a lot easier. Sometimes there are links to nodes in other containers, that can't be recognized from the outside (I mean the arrows; hovering over them doesn't give a clue where they link to). For those people, a grouping in 'groups', but all visible might be a lot easier.

Yup, organization of nodes is 'all' and I find I'm using groups a lot more lately even 'unpacked'. Even when I load a massively scattered .tgc I tend to straighten it up and put in a container and capture all the nodes. That way upon re-opening it's all nice and neat. It's my TG4 resolution in fact to do this always.

Exactely Ulco !
I'm a beginner and I totally agree because it is not so easy to start with TG 4. It's so strange sometimes... ahhh...
BUT IT MAKES FUN !

Placing nodes in a group is ok.
But try to avoid overlaid other nodes.
