Moving a group of nodes
 
Here are two basic commands to do this:
 
Move next siblings right
This will convert all sibling nodes below the current node into child nodes of the current node:
 
Before                            After
 
To perform this action, select either
Main menu ⁄ Tree ⁄ Move ⁄ Next siblings right  or
Tree context menu ⁄ Move ⁄ Next siblings right.
 
Move all children left
This will convert all child nodes of the current node into sibling nodes below the current node. As you might expect, this is opposite in action to Move next siblings right. Simply reverse the Before and After pictures above to get the idea!
 
To perform this action, select either
Main menu ⁄ Tree ⁄ Move ⁄ All children left  or
Tree context menu ⁄ Move ⁄ All children left.
 

 
Handy hints:
  1. Since these moves are mirror images of one another, if  you realize you made a mistake after performing one of them, simply perform the other one. Remember, the Undo function does not apply to the Tree pane.
  2. To move a group of sibling nodes anywhere as one unit, select the top sibling in the group, Move next siblings right, move the group as one to wherever you want  it to be by moving the top node only, then finally Move all children left, effectively piggybacking the others onto the top node. This principle also works if you wish to delete a group of nodes. (Of course, this assumes that below the top sibling node lie only the nodes you wish to move⁄delete.)
