im trying to delete a node that has a few children, and when i do so, it says delete node and children? but i want to keep the children and not the parent…

how would i delete the parent and keep the children nodes? thanks!

maybe one of these reparent or make root menu items can help?

so once a node is given a parent (and becomes a child), it can no longer be without a parent?

unless it is made root… for nothing else is parentless? i think

I’m not aware of such a function, but you could select all direct-children of the parent and drag them out of it, then you can delete the parent.
