I have a very strange question/behaviour and i hope it is not the most stupid question in the world.
Every n8n Node has a drop-down “Select Input”.
But when i select a Input Node, maybe 3–4 Nodes way back, like not the direct, previous neighbor node, it will disregard this change. After I save and refresh the page, it won’t store the information about which node i selected for input and always go back to the direct neighbor node.
First i thought, maybe it has something to do with circular multi input workflows. But then i recreated the bug with very very simple workflows, like 3 nodes, sequentially.
Then i thought it had to do something with my docker-compose setup. But then i tried to recreate it in the paid n8n cloud version. Still get the error.
Now my question:
- is this a planned behavior?
- Why can you even drop-down select previous nodes for input anyway?
Thanks for your help!
