This section of the tutorial shows you how to create a simple tree. The articles contain links to later sections in the section named The Tree pane explaining the functions in greater detail. Double-click these links to follow them (you can change this to single-clicking in Options later if you wish).
Finding your way around
TreePad keeps its own history list of the sequence in which you traverse the nodes in its tree. To return to the article from whence you came, press Alt+Left (arrow). Pressing Alt+Right (arrow) reverses this direction. You can achieve the same effect by clicking the Goto previous node and Goto next node toolbuttons (see Node history list for details), or manually selecting a previously visited node by clicking the History button beneath this article to open the History pane. It is hard to lose your way in TreePad!
Another useful technique is to press Ctrl+Alt+Up or Ctrl+Alt+Down while in the Article pane to change to the next article up⁄down.
As you progress through this tutorial you will encounter numerous keyboard shortcuts to make your task easier. These are listed near the end of the manual in Keyboard shortcuts for your convenience.
