You can use the mouse to drag a node (and its child nodes) to any other node on the tree. You can choose if you want the dragged node to become a child (sub-node) or sibling (same-level node) of the destination node.


To make a node a CHILD of another node:

(1) simply drag it to the destination with your left mouse button,
(2) then release the left mouse button.


To make a node a SIBLING of another node:

(1) first press the "Shift" key on your keyboard,
(2) then - using your left mouse button - drag it to the destination (while keeping the "Shift" key on your keyboard pressed),
(3) then release the left mouse button,
(4) finally release the "Shift" key.


Cancelling drag-drop

To abort a drag-and-drop operation while it is in progress, either move the mouse cursor to a position outside the tree pane such as the main menu or the toolbar (the mouse cursor will change from 'drag-drop' to 'no drop') and then release the left mouse button.
You can also move the mouse cursor to the original position of the dragged node (this will also change the cursor to 'no drop' because you cannot move a node onto itself) and then release the left mouse button.
Yet another way of cancelling drag-drop is to press the "Esc" key on your keyboard during the drag-drop operation. This will change the cursor from 'drag-drop' to 'default'. Finally, release the left mouse button.
