Node formatting: When a user places a node on the graph, the node formatting algorithm is run. So as

you code your Blueprint, your nodes are automatically positioned so they are readable. Examples of the

formatting in action can be seen here

Numerous keyboard shortcuts: The plugin adds shortcuts for all node creation and modification 

functionality which were previously only accessible through the mouse. No more right-clicking 

every time you want to create a node!

are included in the plugin.
