How to enter a topic between two children?

I am new to creating mind maps. I have created the topic, and created subtopics afterwards. How would I insert a subtopic between a subtopic (or between two children topics?) I hope that I am making sense.

    Hi @Steve Newcomb,

    Okay, let me try again!

    Does this look like what you're trying to do?

    Best,

    Miša

    Hi @henryh65 and welcome to the community 👋🙂

    You're at the right place to ask this question, and you get of course some help here.

    I first recommand to take a look at the keyboard shortcuts. It's easy to work with MindMeister and will become more and more intuitive for you. I promise 😉

    Feel free to ask the community again, if there are any further questions.

    Best, Jörg

    I am still not able to add a topic above the current topic even when I follow the instructions. I wish I never purchased this license.

    Hey @henryh65 and welcome. I'm sorry to hear you're facing difficulties!

    Could you maybe share a screen recording of what's going on?

    Best,

    If you want, you can invite one of us to your Mind Map, so we can have a closer look at it. You can of course create a fresh Mind Map and share the link instead.

    Hey @henryh65 and @Steve N,

    Would something like this work for you?

    To do this, I created a floating topic from the topic in the middle:

    1. Right-click the topic you'd like to detach move (Or select it and click the ellipsis ...).
    2. Click the Layout icon.
    3. Click Detach topic.

    And then I added connections between it and the other subtopics:

    1. Right-click the topic you'd like to add a connection to (or left-click the topic and click the ellipsis ...).
    2. Click the Actions icon.
    3. Click Connection.
    4. Click one of the green plus signs around your topic to choose a connection point.
    5. Drag your connection line to the topic you'd like to connect to (no need to hold the mouse button down).
    6. Click one of the four connection points on the connecting topic.
    7. To move a connecting line, click and drag its middle point.

    Let me know if this helps!

    Best,

    Miša

    Thank you for answering. But I am not trying to connect, using your terminology.

    As in the picture you sent, the top pink line shows

    This is a topic leading —o-This is a subtopic.

    I want: This is a topic-o-An inserted subtopic-o-This is a subtopic

    I want to insert something between those two. I dont want to do a Connection.

    Thank you
