Help - Editing node/branch data
This article describes how to edit node/branch data directly in table of the document window of TreeGraph 2. This table contains columns for the node names, branch lengths and each type of text labels and [hidden node/branch data]]. (The unique node name column is not editable.)
Editing values by hand
To edit a value in the table select the according cell with the mouse or move there using the cursor keys. By pressing F2 you can start editing the value. Finish your changes by typing Enter or moving up or down with the cursor keys.

To remove a whole column instead of single values select a cell of that column and click on Edit → Node/branch data → Delete column in the main menu.
Other edit operations
Besides this basic operations several more complex operations are available to edit node/branch data:
- Copying node/branch data (Copies the contents of one node/branch data column to another one.)
- Calculating node/branch data (Powerful feature to calculate textual or numeric values of one column from values of one or more other columns)
- Deleting node/branch data outside interval (Deletes numerical node/branch data values which are not in a specified interval)
- Replace text in node/branch data (Allows to replace substrings of textual node/branch data values or to add substrings before or after the current text.)
