comment How to make irregularly shaped objects / elements look clickable?
@MichaelZuschlag Anecdote—I’ve watched my younger nieces and nephews use digital products, and they are significantly more willing to explore a UI than most adults. I’m not sure if they are better at perceiving UI elements, as much as being more likely to discover them.

comment How do you handle prohibition inside a “free form” interface?
I like your thought process... but what about a node near the edge of the canvas--the user could feasibly "lose" a node off the side and be unable to grab it. I've contemplated new node pushing the old node as you suggest, but I'm not sure how to make the "momentum" shift so it would slide up/down the boundary of the canvas ... nor how to account for other nodes it may collide with during "moving out of the way."

@Sascha - Also, could you elaborate on why double click for node creation disagrees with you? Double click "selects" or "activates" in traditional operating systems, which I equated to "activating" the relevant portion of the canvas with a node.

Added a bit of formatting, and a note about "single click" already being in use.
