In Outline Editing mode the arrow keys have different behavior:
LeftKey Collapse expanded rows
RightKey Expand collapsed rows
UpKey Move up by row
DownKey Move down by row
SpaceKeyToggle rows done status

- Outline > Duplicate (
- Outline > Delete (
- Outline > Indent (
- Outline > Outdent (
- Outline > Move Up (
- Outline > Move Down (

- Outline > Group (
Option-Command-G) Inserts a new row above the selection. And then moves the selection into that new row.
- Outline > Move to Heading... (
Command-\) Move selected rows to choosen heading row.
