How can I connect two concepts without a linking phrase?

Press and hold the <Shift> key down while you create your link to either an existing or new concept.

To permanently change the setting you need to modify the "cmaptools.cfg" configuration file which is located in bin directory in the folder where CmapTools is installed.
  • With a text editor, locate the entry:

    # ================================================================
    # By default linking phrases are added between concepts. Set this to true to
    # not add linking phrases by default. (True | False)
    # ================================================================
    editor.dont.add.linkingphrases=false
  • Change the last line to read:

    editor.dont.add.linkingphrases=true
