Connection UI suggestion

Use case or problem

Current problem: Creating a connection requires trackpad (no keyboard shortcut) and requires clicking on a very small element in the screen.

Proposed solution

1 - Ability to click anywhere (perhaps with a keyboard modifier)
2 - Keyboard shortcut to create a child node or sibling node



  • Fold/unfold nodes (⌘⇧←)
  • Create child node (Return)
  • Create sibling node (tab)
  • Move node above/below ⌘ ↑/↓
  • Move node up/down a level of hierarchy ⌘←/ →
  • Select/focus different nodes (Arrow keys)
  • Reveal full text/notes attached to node in sidebar: ⌘5
