Insert menu
TreePad allows you to insert various useful items into your article, such as date and time, etc. These commands are listed below in the order in which they appear in Main menu ⁄ Insert.
It should be noted that:
  1. Not all commands in Main menu ⁄ Insert appear in Article context menu ⁄ Insert.
  2. Not all commands have accompanying keyboard shortcuts.
  3. A separate list of Insert commands applying to the Tree pane (as distinct from the Article pane) will be found under Main menu ⁄ Tree ⁄ Insert.
  4. Inserting the date⁄time may also be accomplished by clicking the Insert date and⁄or time toolbutton on the Article edit toolbar.

  5. For other ways of creating hyperlinks, see Creating hyperlinks.
  6. This command inserts hyperlinks to one or more files at a time. See Inserting multiple hyperlinks to files.
  7. If the subtree chosen is normally sorted, it is a good idea to sort it before inserting a table of contents, since the order of hyperlinks in the contents list is determined by the current order of the nodes. See Inserting a table of contents.
  8. This command inserts a list of hyperlinks to all nodes in the Search results pane.
  9. The quickest way to replace an existing article title with the node title is to highlight the article title, then use this command to overwrite it. There is no need to delete the highlighted title, and any title formatting will be preserved.
  10. If the node is the Root node, node path and node name are identical.
  11. This opens a window allowing you to select a character with an ASCII value from 30 to 255. See Inserting special characters.

  15. This command inserts into the current article, at the article cursor position, a hyperlink to the currently selected node in any member pane of the Accessory pane that displays a list of nodes (currently Bookmarks, History, Search Results). See Creating underlined hyperlinks using the Insert menu.

Handy hint: If you wish to add style features such as boldface, color, etc., to inserted text, click where you want the text to be inserted in the article, select the font attributes, then Insert the text. It will automatically take on the correct format when it is inserted.
