Sometimes when working with nodes it is useful to see what my setup looks like without a certain node. I know I can delete a node without breaking the chain with Ctrl+X and then undo with Ctrl+Z, but that is kind of cumbersome.
Is there a way to easily bypass a node like this, connecting the inputs to outputs like Ctrl+X does, only without deleting it?
This is called Muting a node. You can mute or unmute a node by selecting it and pressing M. Muting a node will connect the inputs directly to the outputs according to datatype in the same way as Delete With Reconnect (Ctrl+X).
When muted the header of a node will turn red and it will display red wires showing which inputs are connected to which outputs.
