Moving single nodes using the keyboard
 
There are two basic directions of node movement, left⁄right and up⁄down.
 
Leftright moves the node up or down a level in the tree hierarchy, while updown moves the node up or down in relation to its siblings in the same subtree. Combined, the two groups of commands enable you to move a node anywhere up or down the tree just using the keyboard.
 
To move a single node up a level in the tree hierarchy
This turns a child node into a sibling of its parent,  i.e. moves it up into the next higher subtree in the hierarchy.
 
To move a single node down a level in the tree hierarchy
This turns a node from being a sibling of the node immediately above it (in the same subtree) into a child of that sibling, i.e. moves it down into the next lower subtree in the hierarchy.
 
To move a single node up a level in the same subtree
This exchanges positions of a node with its sibling immediately above it in the same subtree, i.e. moves it one level up its subtree but does not affect its hierarchy. It can move no higher than to become the top child node of its subtree.
 
To move a single node down a level in the same subtree
This exchanges positions of a node with its sibling immediately below it in the same subtree, i.e. moves it down its subtree but does not affect its hierarchy. It can move no lower than to become the bottom child node of its subtree.
 
To move a node beyond its subtree root node, either upwards or downwards, using the keyboard alone, first move it into the next higher subtree by pressing Shift+Left arrow, then continue moving it upwards (using Shift+Up arrow), or downwards (using Shift+Down arrow), and so on.
 
Remember that if the node has child nodes, the whole subtree is moved with it.
