The drop down menu currently only displays attributes from the node on the left. Most of the time, it make sense, but sometimes in cases like this:
I am trying to instance little cubes on the vertices of the large cubes, and I want to input a rotation, but it is not there. If I use point distribute first, “rotation” would be there, but when I just simply want to instance on the vertex, it is not there.
I understand the logic, that the attribute needs to be created first, to be displayed on the drop down. But from a UX perspective, it also does not make sense why things like “rotation” and “scale” are not part of the point cloud’s built in attributes included in drop down, despite the “point instance” node clearly accepts a rotation attribute and scale attribute input. I hope I can soon see “rotation” and “scale” in the drop down without the need to manually create it.
