  1. Powerpoint integration

    For a presentation it would be nice to have the possibility to integrate a powerpoint-viewer into a branch. If the task is reached the PP starts smooth.At the end of the PP the normal mindmap-presentation still in process.

  2. completion % automatic

    For some project I think it would be great to have the completion of task been automaticaly calculated on the mother branches, based on the childs completion (for a more simplicity only the last childs branches would be editable)
    It would be ergonomic, intuitive and I think useful for simple projects: a "simple project mode"

  3. Select more than one and change more than one togehter at once

    I want to change the text of different branches at one or two mouse clicks.

    I can select more branches in one click - by holding the ctrl button and selecting them.

    Additonal i want to change the text of this branches - if i had copied a text and paste it only the first branch gets the text

  4. Toolbars in Mac

    I am using a Mac that has limited toolbar content. Your videos show comprehensive toolbars. When will this be possible on a Mac. Also, v4 allowed, in preferences, user defined color progression of main branches, will this be forthcoming?

  5. FolderScan

    Nice to have a function which scans a folder-structure and creates a mindmap based on it (with all the documents linked to the branches -autom. named by the filename). Great for a Knowledgebase

  7. 3d full screen / snipping / Memory Points

    3D Mind Mapping is the jewel in the crown but it's too restrictive.

    I'd like to be able to control the 3D environment in full screen mode (I know 3D is available in presentation mode, but this has hardly any control).

    I'd like to capture these wonderful 3D mind maps to an angle I prefer. If the external Microsoft Snip tool is expected to be used, it should able to work in full screen 3D mode.

    Finally, I'd like memory points implemented in 3D, once I have found a screen shot I am happy with, and wish to return to.…

  8. charts/spreadsheets

    any ideas when these will be usable? particularly charts - one colour pie charts; charts disappear when you edit an existing one; the strange non movable non modal window?

  9. filtered map printing

    printing a filtered map does not make full use of print page space .. the map I have just tried in fact came out smaller and harder to read than the unfiltered map

  12. Customizesation / Substitute for the sketcher tool

    Hello,

    in different programs it is possible to use a customized program to edit for instance a picture or something else.

    It would be great if it can be done in iMindMap to.
    The sketcher is nice and good - but i would substitute it with my favorised program, so i have much more options to draw and edit my pictures.

    I have created a link to show what i am thinking of:
    http://www.landerspraesentieren.de/imindmap/sketcher2.jpg

    Best Regards
    Michael

  14. The area for notes needs to be variable

    The notes area needs to be variable in size so you can drag the edges

  15. Printing notes associated with branches

    I would like an option to print the notes associated with branches. Ideally IMindMap should format / index
    my printed notes according to my branch hierarchy...

  16. Draw branches from specific parts of the central idea picture.

    You should be able to draw branches from specific points of the central idea. For example if I have a picture of the skin I want to be able to draw a branch from the epidermis, from the dermis, etc. In this version and the others it is not possible.

  17. Retaining spreadsheet

    I use iMM5 on a MacBookPro, Mac OSX Snowleopard. I created a spreadsheet via 'Insert', edited it, saved it so it appeared in the main screen linked to a branch. I clicked the spreadsheet again for an extended edit which I performed, saved the spreadsheet again and closed it, just like the first time, expecting it to show up behind its branch. No such luck, though, as it had disappeared for good, without notification.
    A few remarks.
    1st - the spreadsheet has only limited editing-functionality. E.g. inserting rows or columns is not possible and causes a lot of extra work. …

  18. Gradient colouring for MindMap background, central ideas and boxbranches

    Hello,

    i find it helpfull to have a gradient colouring option for the MindMap background, the central idea picture and the boxbranches - for business like "straight line mapping" it would be helpfull although i'm not a friend of this "straight line mapping" programs like MindManager but it would be a good option to implement such a function.

    BTW: it would be nice if i can add a background image instead of only a background color to my MindMmap.

    Michael

  19. Linux Performance

    While the performance of the application on Windows is good (other than the long startup) the performance of the application on Linux is not acceptable. When editing and inserting branches the application is unable to keep up with my typing and it misses key strokes. I am not a fast typist. The screen redraw is too slow. Adding a new branch takes several seconds, even scrolling around the mind map is too slow. Plus there is missing basic functionality in the Linux version that exists in Windows, such as the ability to expand or collapse a single branch.
