Keyboard Shortcuts in the Tree

The tree keyboard shortcuts are effective only when the tree has focus. The tree keyboard shortcuts appear next to the menu commands that perform the same actions. Therefore you can also look them up in the main menu (or the tree popup menu).

Note: "Up", "Down", "Right", and "Left" refer to your keyboard's arrow keys. "Delete" refers to the delete key on your keyboard, "Ins" to the insert key on your keyboard.
