Inserting a child node
In most cases when you create a new child node, you will want it to appear below (after) any existing sibling nodes in the tree. However, on occasions you may want to insert it above (before) its siblings. These commands will still work even if no sibling nodes are present.
Mainly for the benefit of newcomers to TreePad, make sure that the Tree pane is the active pane (i.e., has the focus) before carrying out any tree operations such as adding child nodes, etc. Start by selecting the parent node (i.e., the node to become the parent of the node you will create) with your cursor or mouse, then follow the instructions below.
To create a new child node below existing sibling nodes
- Click Main menu: Tree⁄Insert⁄Child node at bottom or
- Click Tree context menu: Insert child node at bottom or
- Press the Insert key.
To create a new child node above existing sibling nodes
