Pruning Trees: Copying and Deleting Multiple Nodes

  • Updated
  • The Prune tool has been reconceptualized in our new Authoring Experience. See this article
  • Zingtree has a prune tool, which lets you pick a branch of your tree, and copy it to a new tree and/or delete it from your current tree. You can also have a tree node automatically created to link to the new tree, which replaces the deleted portion.

    You can find the Prune function from the Overview tool:

    Or from Designer, by selecting the top node of the branch to prune, and clicking the red Prune button:


    You have three Pruning options for the selected branch:

    • Copy, Link and Delete: Copy to a new tree and delete the branch from the current tree. This also creates a tree node from the current tree to the new tree.
    • Copy the branch to a new tree.
    • Delete the branch from the current tree.
  • Throughout 2022 Zingtree will be upgrading customers to our new faster and more modern user experience! Here's how to tell which experience your Zingtree Authors are currently using.
