Splitting Off Sub-Trees

The Split option allows you to cut a sub-tree out of the hierarchy and create an independent tree with it. When you do this, you get two separate hierarchies at the same time. The node highlighted at the time you selected the Split option becomes the "root" (topmost node) in the new tree.

To split off a sub-tree in a hierarchy, proceed as follows:

  1. Select the topmost node of the sub-tree to be split off.
  2. Split off the selected sub-tree by choosing Edit ® Split. The sub-tree is split off and appears to the right of the remaining hierarchy tree.
