Mindmap Keyboard Navigation?

Just curious to know how to navigate Miro mindmaps using only the keyboard. For example, right now I’m at a UX conference taking notes like mad. But each time I want to add a child node I have to click on the parent node and then hit the tab key. Is there a way to navigate to the parent node using only the keyboard? This would save me a ton of time and effort if so!

Thanks for your help!

Hi @Douglas Cuffman!
As you’re editing a child node, you can navigate back to the parent node by clicking Escape to exit the editing mode and then using Arrows to move between nodes (use Up/Down if the mind map is vertically arranged or Left/Right if it’s horizontally arranged):


Hope this helps! 🙂

Awesome! This is very, very helpful! Thank you!!
