Is it possible to double click on the outermost rung that doesnt have any subgoals yet...

So that it moves to the center AND gives it sub ready to accept the user to enter the title of that subgaol

Great app btw... it would save me a few clicks

    Hello Dwayne

    Thanks for your inquiry – and for the great feedback!

    In Goalscape, a double-click on the goal map is used to change view: you can double-click any goal (that has subgoals) to Focus View on that goal; and when you are in Focus View, you can also double-click on the central goal to Focus on its parent goal, or double-click on the miniature to return to the main view (of the whole project). All these View options are also available in the Goal Edit menu (for the selected goal) and in the right-click context menu.

    While I understand what you are trying to do, using the same double-click action on a bottom-level goal to change the view (Focus on that goal) and add a subgoal to it would produce a view with the double-clicked goal as a central circle with one (as-yet-unnamed) subgoal: this might be confusing to people who are expecting just a change of view.

    The best way to add several subgoals in succession is to:

    1. Use Add Subgoal (and rename the new goal)
    2. Use Add Neighbor (and rename the new goal)
    3. Repeat step 2 as required.

    Once you have added a few subgoals you can Focus on the parent to give you the view you need to change the subgoals – eg dragging their slice sizes to change their Importances.

    Keep enjoying the journey!
