Recently upgraded to 2.5b (1093), and love this feature: View > Show Nodes > In Background (replacing the need for the plugin).
I'd like to lobby for the viewing of nodes not only for paths in the background, but also components. I am constantly (and, I believe, unnecessarily) decomposing components that I have placed as reference in my background so I can see their nodes whilst editing in the foreground. Not only is this an extra step, but I lose my 'live' connection to the original reference glyph.
Using a component in the background of a glyph as a reference (i.e. /O component in the background of /C, to reference the round shape / point placement) is something I do constantly. This would be super handy.
Thanks for the consideration.
(Note: Rainer, I know we've already discussed on GitHub this being a difficult thing to achieve: I thought after noticing View > Show Nodes > In Background I'd bring it back up, in case it presents itself as a possibility down the track)
