For details about these basic manipulations, please refer to the following.
1. Create a step

2. Edit or modify a step
Please refer to "How can I modify steps created in DS?"
3. Delete a step
Select and right-click the step to delete, then click "Delete" in the context menu that appears.
※After selecting it, you can also delete the step by pressing "Delete" on your keyboard.
4. Select a step (or many)
Left-click a step to select it. (you can select multiple steps if you press and hold the Ctrl button at the same time)
You can also select many steps by left-clicking a random location and dragging the mouse cursor to enclose the target steps.
To unselect a specific step, hold Ctrl and left-click it again.
To unselect all the steps, left-click anywhere (except the steps themselves).
5. Copy, cut, and paste a step
Select and right-click a step, then click "Copy" in the context menu that appears. (or "Cut" if you want to perform this action)
※You can also select a step, then press the Ctrl and C buttons at the same time to copy it. (For the Cut action, use X instead of C)
Right-click the place you want to insert a step in (here, the arrow) and click "Paste" in the context menu that appears.
※You can also select the next step of your target location, then press the Ctrl and V buttons at the same time to paste.
6. Move a step
You can change the positions and modify the sequence inside the flow, using drag and drop manipulations.
Select a step, left-click it and hold; then drag it to your target location.
Once the target location becomes blue, release (drop).
7. Change the running sequence of steps
You can change the running sequence of steps by using drag and drop manipulations on the connection spots.
By left-clicking the right edge of a step, holding and moving (drag) to your target location, available connections appear as yellow spots.
If your target spot turns blue, release (drop). You have joined two steps together.
