Keyboard use for taking notes

Have new ideas for the next release of IHMC CmapTools and IHMC CmapServer?
We welcome your suggestions and we will carefully consider whether to incorporate them into the software.

Keyboard use for taking notes

Post by kewapo »

I usually take notes in the conferences I have in my work with VUE (visual understanding environment) because I can't use CmapTools with the keyboard.

In vue the keys to create nodes and links are:
CTRL + N: new node
ALT + mouse move: create links
ARROWS: move nodes and links

There is no way for live-taking notes with CmapTools using the mouse all the time. There is imposible.
Not only knowledge is important in concept maps. I think is more important usability and the visual aspect of the maps.

I totally agree on the keyboard interface it is significantly more efficient. I like many other people have difficulty/cannot use the mouse. (I have repetitive-use strain but, there are many accessibility issues that can cause difficulty.) While this software seems to do what I want from reading the features I cannot use it.
