Add "RapidFire" mode & pure keyboard support

So the killer feature I really love about WebspirationPRO is its "RapidFire" mode (activated by clicking on a lightning symbol), so that it's very easy for a user to rapidly add new nodes to a map via simple keyboard maneuvers. It'd be really great too if the final feature (if implemented in CmapTools) could further allow 100% keyboard manipulation to permit the traversal and accession of different nodes with pure keyboard action (the idea being to eliminate any and all required use of the mouse).

Based on the current list of keyboard shortcuts

https://cmap.ihmc.us/docs/cmaptools-faqs#1-14

Can you suggest a list a new shortcuts you would like implemented?

Let me do it for topic starter. I'd like very much to have the following shortcuts for an Open Cmap:
  • Add Concept: Insert
  • Edit Selected Concept: F2
  • Duplicate Selected Concept: Ctrl+D
  • Copy Style: Ctrl+Shift+C
  • Paste Style: Ctrl+Shift+V
  • Add Web Adress: Ctrl+H
  • Add & Edit Links to Resources: Ctrl+Shift+H
  • Add Info: Ctrl+Enter
  • Annotate: Ctrl+Shift+Enter
  • Deselect All: Ctrl+Shift+A

AndrewZ, To add to your idea:

I suggest using a different key to add a concept instead of "Insert". I am using a Mac - there is no Insert key on my keyboard :D
My suggestion is to use a key like Tab - maybe something different.

I also suggest the following Workflow:
1. Select the Root Node (Node A)

2. Press the new key (e.g. Insert, e.g Tab) once to create new Node + Relationship to Node A.
Make the relationship being selected so i can immediately edit the text inside

3. Press the new key (e.g. Insert, e.g. Tab) a second time.
The selection moves forward to the new Node, so i can immediately edit the text of it

4. New Node + Relationship added

By adding Shift to the New Key, the relationship could omit a text, moving forward immediately to the new node (Node B)
