[intelligent patching]: Automatically connect [bang] or [toggle] to first outlet of previous object when created with keyboard shortcut #826
I like the fact that I can quickly chain a bunch of objects together by typing into an object box, and then instead of pressing enter I can press the keyboard shortcut to create another object right away that's automatically connected to it.
However, I’ve noticed that this behaviour is not consistent when you try to create [bang] or [toggle] boxes in this way. It works if you create a [bang] or [toggle] as your first object, and then use keyboard shortcuts to chain additional objects; but not the other way around. If I try to create a [metro] object and then type the keyboard shortcut to create a [bang] instead of pressing enter, the bang will appear but will be disconnected from the [metro] object.
Attached is a video for reference.
