1. no. it's a feature . just use the label for that.
you can link the label to the node name by typing:
2.you can hit 'n' on a selected node to get a quick edit field but you'll have to hit esc to close it again so it's not quite as elegant for display only. it would be possible to do some tcl for that but that would pop up a window that you have to close as well.
The following would print the name into the terminal which, if it's behind your Nuke UI, isn't very handy either:
[CODE]puts [value [selected_node].name][CODE]
It would be nice to have tooltips in the DAG which, I believe, has been discussed but maybe another feature request mail could help.
3.not quite sure what you mean. if you have a layer with two channels and copy in a third one it shouldn't alter any existing channels. As for the shuffle copy node, it should preserve all channels of input 2 that aren't over written with data from input 1 in the ShuffleCopy node. To be honest, I never use the shuffle copy node, the Copy node usually does what I need. Will that work for what you're trying to do?
