(but I tack on a few more at the end.)
Perhaps Bolt could unobtrusively present the Align/Distribute options whenever more than one unit is selected like Grasshopper (a Rhino plugin) does it? You stay in the same region of your workspace, and clean-up as you go.
Other workflow suggestions:
- is there a reason not to implement grouping selected units using ctrl-G?
- Grasshopper has alt-drag empty space to shift all units to the left/right by the drag distance, for when you want to insert a few units in a spaghetti monster (and, just discovered, tapping alt to change that to up/down)
- ctrl-shift-leftclick(drag) on an arrow to move all those arrows somewhere else (instead of destroying all the arrows and rewiring it)
- unit snap so wires are straight?
I don't know how difficult these would be to implement (maybe for bolt 2 if so?) but they're minor UI quality-of-life improvements that promotes organizing work as you go.
