Move Topics

To move a topic, you can drag and drop it to the targeted position or use the shortcut keys to move the topic up, down, left, or right within the same level.

When you move a topic by selecting and dragging it to the new position, a visual sign will show when the topic is moved. Any of your topics (except Main Idea) and the branches can be rearranged and moved among different levels.
