Keyboard Shortcuts (aka Hotkeys)

OrgVue uses many standard hotkeys. These are dependent to some extent on the browser you are using, so we have seen variations from time to time in hotkey functions in Internet Explorer, Chrome and Firefox.

The list of hotkeys below can all be helpful:


Hot Key Action
Ctrl-SPACE Autocomplete e.g. Gr -> Group
Ctrl-D Delete node
Ctrl-N or Ctrl-Q Add as Root
Ctrl-ENTER Add as Child
SHIFT-ENTER Add as Sibling
Ctrl-RIGHT/DOWN Expand level
Ctrl-LEFT/UP Collapse level
Ctrl-SHIFT-RIGHT/DOWN Expand all
Ctrl-SHIFT-LEFT/UP Collapse all
