Is there a way to select a tool (selection tool, link tool, node tool) with the keyboard ? It would be nice to create nodes and the links between them without having to move the mouse way up to the main tool bar each time.

These are usability nits, perhaps, but they indicate a good product. In other words, I am starting to become very productive but run into little things like the above, which, if there were a certain keyboard equivalent, I could create my maps much faster. I will likely be creating many maps, as I will be using this to map out analysis of many projects that I work on.

Thank you.

I'm sorry, RTFM to me. I had not read the user's guide, I had just explored the user interface. Pressing control will do what I was looking for. Sorry again. I'll read the user's guide before asking any more questions.

Also, by clicking on the Help Menu -> Keyboard shortcuts you'll get a pretty complete list of the available keyboard shortcuts. Just make sure the map has focus when you're using them.

Wow, there are a lot of shortcuts. I obviously missed that on the Help menu. I had just explored all the other menus and toolbars. Thank you very much for your help.
