Promote moves the selected entry to the heading, revealing its descendants, if any. Select the dot line to add to the end of the list or select an entry to add immediately above it. New entries can be added by typing or pasting.

Promote and its counterpart Demote give a rapid way of navigating and working on your model without getting bogged down in the structural detail. It means you can remain focused on the current topic. You can use Split window to create working views on other parts of the model, or Aerial view to get an overview of the progress of your work.

Note that if you are moving to a very long list, BrainStorm may take a short while to rebuild the display. Progress is shown on the status line.

One other thing. Any blank entries that were at the end of the list you are promoting, will have been removed automatically. The last entry in any list will always be the dot, a real entry or a marked entry (whether it has contents or not.)

Double click on entry (or click once when entry is already selected)
