Typically, you pin a node to an editor by selecting it in the Graph Editor and then clicking the pin button in another editor. However, if you’re in a hurry, there’s a faster way, which we’ll show you today.

Demo of quickly pinning multiple nodes to various editors.

To quickly pin a node, middle-click and drag the node from the Graph Editor onto another editor. You can even drop the dragged node onto an editor in another tab. With this shortcut, you can set up a Gaffer window layout with multiple pinned nodes in no time.
