how to disable the Opinionated right click?

0 votes

When I want to edit a graph with yEd,  the first thing I always do is right click the edit area to let yEd get the focus. But after I do that, yEd will add a rectangle or thing that is set to "use as default"  opinionately. Oh, I have to delete it every time!

maybe there is a setting to disable this feature?

But what I really want to say is that why design this great function to make me Collapseļ¼Ÿ

yEd does not create nodes on right-click. It simply opens a context menu - and that will vanish once again on the next click.

Anyways, if you want to disable node creation on left-click, go to "File" -> "Preferences", tab "Editor" and change setting "Create Node on Background Click".
