    Is there a shortcut to edit an existing node? Currently I have to double click the node, which select the whole text, so I have to click again, before typing. This is very unintuitive.

    I have a student wanting to put an image as their background; is that possible? Or are you limited to the pre-set colours for backgrounds etc.

    The outline feature is great, but it disappeared from my options on the left side of the screen. Was it moved or is something broken?
