Drag to an item in a flow to immediately connect it

Service Studio
On our radar
A long time ago (version 4? 5?) you could drag someone onto an item on the flow, and it would appar and automatically be connected as the next item. For example, I could drag an assign to a query and it would create the assign with the Query pointing to it. That functionality disappeared a while back, and I miss it!

More like the other way around, mine was here 4 years before the other one. :D

Merged this idea with 'Insert on drop in a flowchart' (created on 23 May 2018 15:09:18 by Ritchie Annand)

This would really help the speed of editing actions on numerous occasions.

Right now, if you want to insert something before another node with multiple inbound arrows:

...you drop it on one of the inbound arrows:

...and then re-point the other arrow (or arrows):

It would be my fondest wish that, for any drop onto a node that would normally be prohibited (you can drop Download onto an End and it changes - so, not things like that), it turns into an insert that steals all of the inbound arrows:

->

If there's already a fancy way to do this in one shot and I'm embarrassing myself, that's okay; I would like to know the shortcut :)

Mm, side note: steal all inbound logic arrows but don't steal any comment arrows :)
