I'm trying to figure out what the keyboard shortcuts are to connect two
nodes with just the keyboard. I can get the connection tool activated and
tab into the canvas, but I don't know how to connect the nodes. Is there
a list of accessibility commands for this?

Hi Sue,

Here is a list I wrote a while ago, but it's missing stuff about
connections.

http://eclipse-ruminations.blogspot.com/2009/03/keyboard-sho rtcuts-and-accessibility-in.html

This is what I was able to figure by looking at ConnectionCreationTool.

1. Get keyboard focus on the connection tool
2. Select it with Enter
3. Use arrow keys to find source anchor
4. Press Enter to start connection
5. Use arrow keys to find target anchor
6. Press Enter to complete the connection

Hope that helps
Ben
