Shortcuts for selecting and moving objects in Map View

You can use the following keyboard commands to select objects in your mind map when you are not in text editing. When the grid is off, movements still occur relative to the grid width and height. To select objects such as links with the arrow keys, we recommend setting the grid width and height to .25 in (.64 cm).
