Delete a branch in a diagram
There are several ways to remove a branch in a diagram:
- Right click on the text to open the context menu (or press and hold on it using a touchscreen device). Then click on the "delete branch" option in the context menu.
- Alternatively, on a desktop device, hold either the
[alt]keys, and hover over the text of the item. An (X) will appear which you can click to remove it.
- Finally, you can also press the backspace key twice in an empty item, and it will be removed, or use the
[ctrl] + [shift] + [backspace]shortcut. (These are easy ways to remove items without having to use the mouse)
When a branch is removed it will remove the item and all of the child items connected to it. To remove an item without removing its children, hold the
[ctrl] key, or the
[alt] key after opening the context menu, and the delete branch icon will turn into the icon to remove just one item.
