Selecting a node

There are two ways of selecting nodes in the Network tree.

Simple selection

It's used for performing such operations as deletion and moving between groups containing one or multiple nodes

It's done in the same manner as in Windows Explorer: using your mouse's Rectangle selection or keyboard keys Shift and Ctrl and arrow keys.

The selected nodes are highlighted with the blue background:

This type of selection doesn't affect other workspace areas in any way.

Selection for processing

This selection type is used for selecting nodes to work with in the Uninstallation desktop and Edit modes.

The Network tree has two selection modes: Single selection and Multiple selection. To switch between modes, use the Multiple selection option located in the Tree display settings menu.

Single selection

Active when the Multiple selection box is unchecked.

Only one network node or one group can be selected. To select it, simply click the node. You can also press Enter after using one of the Simple selection methods (e.g. arrow keys). The selected node is highlighted with the blue rectangle:

While staying in the single selection mode, you can quickly select the next or previous node in the tree: Alt + arrow up/down.

Multiple selection

Active when the Multiple selection box is checked.

Each node will receive a checkbox, and the nodes are selected when their checkboxes are ticked:

You can check or uncheck the box either with the mouse or by selecting the nodes using Single selection and pressing the space bar.

Selecting a group in the Single selection mode is the same as selecting all assets in this group and its subgroups in the Multiple selection mode. The list of installed software will be built for all assets inside the group, and editing will affect all as well, so you don't need to enable the Multiple selection mode to build reports for whole groups.
