  1. Remember view settings.

    Save Mind Map and Project (tier) view settings. It's tedious having to reset these each time a file is opened - especially when having to update multiple files each day.

  3. Include childmaps in Powerpoint export

    When exporting to Powerpoint it would be great to be able to include childmaps. Now I have to export each map in turn and build the presentation manually afterwards.

  4. Remember setting for paper size

    I am one of a few users who live in the United States where the default paper size is letter. iMindMap defaults to a European paper size and landscape orientation. Please consider allowing us to choose a default paper size, orientation, and paper margins -- or enable iMindMap to remember the last-used paper size/orientation.

  7. font formatting in ribbon

    I notice the font formatting is not displayed correctly in the ribbon.

    Sometimes it is difficult to see whether text is in BOLD or not .

    The font formatting ribbon is not updated when text is selected.

  10. E-learning Courses

    iMindMap used to boast a feature called "E-learning Course". I never had the opportunity to try it out.

    However, I have always been appealed by the idea of authoring and sharing a course as a set of mindmaps. Isn't learning one of the pivotal uses of mindmaps ?

    Are there any plans to implement this feature in iMindMap 5 ?

    Such a feature would allow one to :
    - Bundle mindmaps and associated resources (like the Pack & Go feature) ;
    - Allow students to browse the course easily and offline.

    I am looking forward to reading the comments of…

  11. Linking to Emails

    Maybe this a Microsoft issue, but it seems that the only documents on my computer that I can't link to are specific emails in Outlook folders. Any ideas, apart from saving each email as a separate PDF document?

  12. Proxy access to cloud

    Proxy access to my account works fine and I can download maps saved in the cloud while connected via proxy. However I can't upload to the cloud when connected via a proxy which means the cloud functionality is dramatically reduced.

  13. Size of mindmap when exported to PowerPoint

    I recently had to do a presentation and so rather than making a boring PowerPoint slideshow I decided to use iMindMap instead.

    Once exported to PowerPoint my mindmap played just how I wanted it but, when it was displayed on a large whiteboard screen there was a lot of blank space around the edges and the mindmap wasn't very big and easy to read.

    I experimented with changing both the font size of the mindmap, and the zoom level before exporting but it appeared to make no difference.

    Is there a way to make each mindmap take up more of…

  15. image or PDF in cloud

    The cloud looks pretty good so far.

    As not many computers have the iMindMap software installed, it might be a good idea to automatically store an image/PDF version of mindmaps in the cloud.

    When I am using my PC, I don't need the cloud. When I access the cloud from a different PC, I would still be able to get my mindmaps and also tell my friend, "Hey, if you installed the iMindMap software, we would be able to modify the mindmap"

    Oh dear, there goes my tenth vote again!

  16. Links

    Links are presented on branches but not from boxes, it would be great to be able to link from the text in the box and have it show like a hyperlink, currently when joining boxes together the link shows between boxes on the branch and is in no mans land i.e. belongs to neither box...

  17. Tidy up spreadsheet insert

    Would be good to be able to determine the 'rectangle' that needs to be inserted into the iMindmap.

    Currently there is a large spreadsheet inserted even if say only 4x4 table used (see attachment).

  18. Notes not friendly let us change what we want on the ribbon

    Let us please change the ribbon on the notes!!! I mean at least we could change the size of the font that we pasted in quickly. I know we'll probably never get to change the default font because its just to difficult to imagine that ANY of us use this to write with but at least GOD Please given US some freedom in deciding our own fate!!!!!
