get_tree().get_edited_scene_root().get_node(path_to_node) seems not to work!

Can you give some more information about your project? Do you want to create a custom node that adds a node to its parent? Just create the object var foo = and then add it whereever you want it in the tree with add_child(). get_node() does not add a node it gets an existing node.

I want to make a plugin in editor that add a child node in the edited scene. I guess there are two trees, one for the editor and one for the edited scene but I can’t access this one.
