Can I rearrange the workbook tree with drag-and-drop?

Yes. The STATISTICA Workbook supports an entire range of drag-and-drop features within the workbook tree. By right-clicking on an item in the workbook tree, you can drag that item to a new location within the tree. In fact, since the drag-and-drop features support parent/child relationships, you can use these features to rearrange large portions of the workbook tree.

To select the parent node and all of its children, simply click on the parent node (or press CTRL while clicking on the parent node and each of its children). To make discontinuous selections (i.e., select some of the children, but not all of them), hold down the CTRL key while clicking on each item you want to select. You can also make discontinuous selections across nodes using the CTRL key. For more information on making selections in the workbook tree, see Can I select discontinuous items in the workbook tree?.

Follow these steps to move a folder (and its contents) to a new location in the workbook tree:

  • Click on the folder to select it and all of its children.

  • Right-click on the folder, and drag the folder to a new location in the tree.

  • Release the right mouse button, and a shortcut menu is displayed, giving you options to either copy or move the dragged item. You can place the item before, after, or as a child to the newly selected item in the tree. For this example, select Move After from the shortcut menu.
