Type and Return:

Type and return helps you build your maps quickly and easily by capturing what you type – no mouse, no dialogs.

To Get Started:

  • Select a branch to become the parent (new branches are added below the branch selected, as children).
  • Start typing the name of your branch, then press return.

Drag and Drop:

Drag and drop helps you recognise branches without the need to delete and re-add it.

To Get Started:

  • Select the branch or parent you want to move
  • Click and start dragging away from it’s current position
  • Hover the mouse over it’s new location, using the drop indicator to refine it’s new position
  • Release the mouse to complete the move

Map Explorer:

The map explorer helps you make sense of large and complex maps. Use the map explorer to focus in on certain areas of the map, or to create a branch on screen.

To Get Started:

  • Choose which mode the explorer should operate in; focus or pan
  • Select a branch or parent
  • The map detail will drill down to view the parent branch and child branches selected
