Moving Node Shortcuts
Moving Nodes
There are two main ways to move a node:
  • Click on a node while holding Ctrl. Then use the arrow keys to drag the node to your desired location.
  • The second method copies the node you wish to move and then snaps it to the new position. In order to do this, first find the Save Node to Move menu option on the node you wish to move and click it. Then move to a different node near where you would like the current node and click the Snap Saved Node to Position button.
There are also keyboard shortcuts to accomplish node snapping. See Keyboard Shortcut Quick Guide page for more details.
  • Use the design space map as many times as required to find your way from one hierarchy to the other.
  • Remove the pin once the reference is established so that the node goes back to its place.
