minimize Hide all  maximize Show all

I grouped the features according to natural usage, not as they found in the menus.
I have included ribbon/local menu shortcuts to some frequently used features that have no shortcut. Some keystrokes are repeated.
Previous and Next means topic level in the mindmap. This can be horizontally up-down-left-right depending on the structure of the map.

minusplus1. Most used

Enter Add topic (sibling, next, same level)
Shift+Enter Add topic as previous (sibling, same level)
Delete Delete (and all subtopics)
minusplusPrevious/next level
Insert Insert subtopic (next)
Ctrl+Shift+Insert Iinsert parent topic (previous)
Ctrl+Shift+Delete Cut-out (delete topic, and shift-up subtopics one level; good to remove an accidentally inserted parent)
