I’ve come from using the Freemind desktop mind-mapping tool and figured Miro would be a great online alternative.
One thing that became very quickly clear though was how useful some of the keyboard shortcut keys in Freemind are.
In particular, you can press the Insert key to add a new child node and Enter to add a new sibling node. Additionally, you can quickly step between nodes by pressing ctrl-arrow keys too.
Having keyboard shortcuts for these is incredibly efficient because when you’re in the process of rapidly jotting down ideas, you don’t want to keep moving your hand off the keyboard and onto the mouse to add nodes.
