Managing nodes

Hello,

 

In the authoring canvas, how do you add a new nodes into the middle of an existing chain?

 

I noticed you can cut and separate a chain mid way and add a new node where it was cut from but then I don't see how to re-attach the orphaned part of the chain back onto the main one.

Hello @adrian-m 

 

Check out my example:

 

Here I have 2 actions not attached to the main part.

Next I am going to "pretend" to add a message under my Action.

You will see a tiny circle at the end of the line, which will turn pink when highlighted as shown:

Next I click and drag this to the separated part. Everything that also highlights as pink when holding it is where we can drag and connect our shapes to:

Hope this helps!
