Ctrl+arrows to link nodes while navigating between nodes

0 votes
Normally the arrow keys allow fast navigation between adjacent nodes.

I'd like to be able to rapidly link many adjacent nodes by selecting the first one, and then using CTRL+arrow keys to link nodes while navigating.

You might want to try out the following:

1. Create a node.

2. Select the node.

3. Type "CTRL+W".

4. Type "CTRL+D".

5. Repeat 4 as needed.

This is pretty good, I didn't know you could do that.

I find, though, that I tend to work by creating nodes, labeling them and then shuffling their order until I see what I like. THEN I link them.
