About multiple node selection in AI editor:
- on desktop: left click to select a zone, right or middle click to drag
- on mobile: single touch to select a zone, double touch to drag/zoom

Also single clicking/touching a node toggles its selection state.
Which means you can combine zone selection and node by node selection.

Does that mean it's one-click nodes? That sounds super fast.

I was asking if nodes open with 1 click of the mouse on desktop version.

You have to select it first.
If its the only node selected, clicking on it again edits it.

Did you actually try it?

My few notes as of a few seconds:
1. Request: can I get more than just being forced to you two fingers to move around the screen? It feel really awkward trying to view a full AI the way things current is
2. Request: can we a setting in the options menu to turn off the Christmas Tree node coloring?
3. Action nodes don't quite fit on the screen in portrait mode
4. There indeed is an "undefined" target type when creating a new condition

5. Also, the Christmas Tree doesn't work well for colorblind people
6. The giant question mark hints are kinda in the way of using tags. How do I turn them off?
7. Why are we still limited to 1 tag/untag per tick?

I don't think GFX had enough time to change the untag/tag to more than than one bot. I put the request in literally 3 days ago.

Number 7 is a bug: if a condition reads any info on tags, no other tags will get updated afterwards

8. I somewhat have an issue with walls not being a death plane since we still can't move towards a different wall, we still can't differentiate where it would be safe to go, and (more importantly), there is no "is touching" range so for players like me who don't want to stop a mile away from the wall, there's no way to know that I'm just sliding into a corner where I would eventually die anyways
