Stupid LabVIEW Trick - Swap Terminals

Quick piece of trivia for those who might find this useful.

So you wired up a node, maybe even debugged it, and found out DOH! I wired them backwards (especially for a subtract primitive). There is a quick shortcut you can file away.

If you want to swap the wiring without deleting the wires and rewiring it, hold down the Control key (on Windows or similar key on the other platforms) and click on the top or the bottom wire terminal on the subtract primitive. Voila, the terminals get swapped.

Note: If you are not using the aut0-tool, you must have the wiring tool selected when you do this.

This doesn't work in my LV 7.1. Could it be that certain options need to be enabled? Or is it because I have LV-RT and LV-RIO installed on top of LV 7.1?

Ah, I figured it out. If you don't have the auto-tool on, you must have the wiring tool selected in order to use this trick.

Does it also work for other elements?
