      • 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:

        Best Regards
        Michael

            • 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...

              • 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.

                • 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. …

                  • 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

                    • 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.

                        • ENABLE ANIMATED *.GIFS

                          animations are more powerful than pictures- this would take mindmapping to a whole new level.

                          FLOW DIAGRAM ANIMATION PERHAPS: this would save the user from having to create an animated flow diagram via GIF (which at this stage, wouldn't work)

                          • Quicker mapping / navigation on Mac

                            Mapping in v5 is slower than v4 for a few reasons for me. (2011 MacBookPro 13")

                            1) Arrow keys don't move among the branches (as in the docs), they scroll the screen. This forces use of the mouse. A bug?

                            2) Scrolling is *very* slow. When zoomed in to the map it take a long time to scroll to the other side.

                            3) In speed mind mapping in v4, simply typing created a new child branch. This is great as it is one of the most common tasks. Now I must first type command-enter which is actually slower.

                            Now when…

                              Please use Internationalization in this software. For example, Page Setup doesn't work with french in Switzerland. Values for margins are not possible ! Actually, for me V4.1 is better as the 5 !

                                  I do not understand why the font that is used to display changes when editing. This causes issues if you want to type text that will fit within a given space. It's a very basic bug. Please just let us edit the text as it is - WYSIWYG please! Thanks

                                    would really like to be able to quickly copy format from one branch to another (font/size/colour/bold/underline etc) in order to add a different association (ie withiout need to always use a relationship arrow)
                                    Also can we have a key shortcut for relationships?

                                      I want to be able to have a simple text output. The ability to print the Text view or a similar solution would be welcome.

                                      • extensibility

                                        lack of options on export renders Word/Excel etc export effectively unusable for me, they don't fit in with corporate templates. don't expect you to do this out of the box, but an extensibility API, scripting, document template or customisable template would suffice. I guess I could parse data.xml but this is not the same as a published interface

                                          in the miniexcel, you can't correctly insert these tables
