Editing objects

After adding objects on the map, you can use drag & drop and resizing handles to change their position and, with figures, their size as well.

Before selecting or editing nodes and shapes, make sure that Selection is enabled in the Toolbar.

Selecting objects

When a single object is selected, a frame will appear around it.

To select multiple assets, use your mouse’s Rectangle selection and/or keyboard keys Shift and Ctrl.
Ctrl+A selects all objects on the map.

To deselect one or several objects, hold Ctrl and click on objects or draw a rectangle around them.
To deselect all objects, left-click in empty space on the map or press Esc.

To select an unfilled shape, click on its outline. When using Rectangle selection, only those shapes that are completely inside the rectangle will be selected.

You can select a link only when Links is selected in the Toolbar. This allows to change its properties or delete it.

Basic clipboard operations can be performed from the context menu of one or multiple selected objects (i.e. nodes and shapes): copy (Ctrl+C), cut (Ctrl+X), and paste (Ctrl+V).
Various other context menu items will be displayed depending on the type and number of selected objects.
From here, you can also manage the assets themselves.

Moving and resizing objects

To change the position of an object (a node or a shape), grab it and move it to a new spot.
To move a group of objects at the same time, you must first select all of them, and then grab one of the selected objects and drag the group to a new position.

You can move one or multiple objects along the map’s grid using the arrow keys while holding Ctrl. Holding both Ctrl and Shift simultaneously allows you to move objects with the shortest step (but grid alignment must be disabled).

To resize a shape first, select it to make its frame visible. The frame contains a handle in each corner, as well as in the center of each side. Grab and drag one of these eight handles.
If you hold Ctrl, the shape will be resized strictly in one dimension.
Holding Shift allows proportional resizing (proportions may be distorted if grid alignment is enabled).

Press Esc while moving or resizing to cancel the operation and return the objects to their previous position.

You can rotate a shape 90 degrees to each side from its context menu. From here, you can also change its layer relative to any intersecting shapes (via menu items Forward and Backward) or send one or more shapes as far as possible to the foreground or background (via menu items To front and To back).

With multiple shapes, the relative order between the selected shapes will be preserved.

Deleting objects

To delete a network map object, use Delete on your keyboard or the object’s context menu.

When attempting to delete multiple objects, you may be prompted to confirm the action. Confirmations can be disabled from Options.

If you delete a map node, its links will also be deleted.


Deleting nodes from the network tree also leads to the deletion of all of their counterparts on all network maps.
