A domain model may also be edited using key
instance if a selected line refers to a Concept:
- inserts a concept after that concept.

- indent the concept if it is not on the first
line. The indented concept becomes a sub-concept (a specialization)
of the preceding concept (or system concept).
- outdents the concept if it is a sub-concept of
a concept (or system concept). The concept becomes a concept at the
same level as the preceding concept.
- forwards the selected concept by changing its
type. The concept is changed to a System concept if it is
at the top-level of the domain.
- backwards the selected concept by changing its
type. A concept, which is a sub-concept of another concept is
transformed to an Aggregate of that concept.
