Text editing should work as you expect. This is a nice feature of Bike. Often outliner applications constrain text editing in various ways. Bike doesn't do that.
In addition to expected text editing commands Bike also adds a few new ones.
- Selection > Select Word (
Control-W) Expand selection to word boundaries.
- Selection > Select Sentence (
Control-S) Expand selection to sentence boundaries.
- Selection > Select Paragraph (
Shift-Command-L) Expand selection to paragraph boundaries.
- Selection > Select Branch (
Shift-Command-B) Expand selection to branch boundaries.
- Selection > Expand Selection (
Option-Command-Up) Expand the selection up through the different boundary levels.
- Selection > Contract Selection (
Option-Command-Down) Undo previous Expand Selection command.
- Outline > New Row (
Command-Return) This is similar to pressing
Return. The difference is that it will only insert a new row. Pressing
Returnwill replace the selection with a newline to create the new row.
- Outline > Duplicate (
- Outline > Indent (
- Outline > Outdent (
- Outline > Move Up (
- Outline > Move Down (
- Outline > Move to Heading... (
- Outline > Delete Rows (
Indent and Outdent are important and used frequently. There are multiple keyboard shortcuts to perform these two commands. First you can use
Shift-Tabas described in Getting Started. Second you can use the above arrow key based shortcuts. Third you can use
In text editing mode, these commands all work on individual rows, unconstrained by the outline structure. This is as you would expect in a text editor, but maybe different than you would expect if you are used to outliners. See outline editing for outline editing behavior.
