  1. Set sibling detail level

    Working with a large map requires you to see the train of thought which led to this node, but often there are many levels of sibling nodes.

    In order to navigate properly, you need to be able to set the level of siblings displayed to continue navigating or adding items.

    Would like a function to set sibling detail, or even allow a sweeping motion from one node, pop up it's siblings, move to a sibling, it expands further, etc. much like walking down a corridor and opening doors.

  2. Add and Label Printing Paper Sizes

    In the printing window, you label paper sizes as A5 or B4 or C3 (etc.). Many in the US (like me) don't know those sizes easily. We use 8.5 x 11, 11 x17, 8.5 x 14, etc.. Please add the paper measurements to the choices.

  3. Version 5.3, running in Mac OS Lion, refresh

    It does not refresh the screen until the zoom button is used. Problem occurs when add, delete, resize branches. Very difficult to use this version. It is worse then previous.

  5. Suggestion with pressing Tab to add Branch

    After editing a new branch, we must press "Enter" before pressing "Tab" to add a new branch. I don't think the space created by pressing tab is necessary while editing a branch, so why not make tab "Enter + Tab" so we can add branches faster. thanks

  6. Export image as vector eps

    It would be nice to export a image as vector eps because of publishing reason. Every designer/publisher can work very well with vector eps images to get good printing quality.

  7. Hotkey for Start Preentation from Here

    (I'm using Mac version of iMindMap5) Currently, the only way to go into Presentation view starting at the selected node, is via a right-click menu option. This is clunky to do when presenting to a group live (that is, the audience see this menu selection being done). It would be far better to have a hotkey/keyboard shortcut for this. Also ... you need to also add this menu option to the standard View menu. Currently, the only place this function exists is on the right-click menu. As a hotkey example from Windows world ... pressing F5 starts a PowerPoint slideshow,…

  8. Loss of branch font propreties

    Branches lose their font properties when they are transferred from one branch to another (copy paste, cut paste 2) or when creating a child mind map.
    Example : If I make some branches bold or change it's text size; i lose those properties if i choose to cut-paste it within another branch or worse, if i chose to make a child map which basically makes me lose all the work I put into those branches.

  9. Let us Share Custom Styles

    It would be awesome if you could create a space where users could share custom styles. It would stimulate the creation of mindblowing styles and allow everyone to increase their options for different map's looks. Template sharing could be established too. Biggerplate works with lots of software and is not a very easy to use website.

  11. expand collapse

    when i expand a branch it is generally because I have collapsed the other branches and want to work on a particular one - however - expand only expands to the next level - it would be really useful if there was an option to be able to expand everything above a certain branch instead of having to select each sub branch individually

  15. Notes needs to be updated badly

    Is it just me or is anyone else sick of the way this software handles a text note. Why can't we cut and paste to the way we would like it formatted and then save it as our default?

  16. Sketch bug

    I find that the sketch tool in iMM4 is much better than the one in iMM5, I am unable to re-size the Sketch tool frame, which makes it difficult for me to crop images. Also, when i crop an image the "save button" is still gray and not clicable. Finally, why is it I can't make the inside of any of the geometry shapes transparent, this way i can circle a particular portion of the picture which i want to emphasize on (the way it used to be in iMM4).

    Also, the spreadsheet idea is good, but not well done,…

  17. Drag and Drop Internet links

    I'm having real problems with this App it seems very clunky. I'd like to drag and drop links from browser but anything I drop on a node is put into text. It will not let me drop on the links tab. Personal Brain drag and drop is sooooo much better. 1. it highlights the receiving object 2. I just does the right thing with what your dropping

  18. Images via URL

    As someone who uses quite a lot of images for mind maps (and finding the native "image search" quite random/ineffectual) I was wondering if it is possible have an option to use image URLs when inserting images? I think this would be beneficial for two main reasons:

    1. Most people have online image libraries or albums and they would then just have to right click on the image to copy the its URL and then paste it into the appropriate image selection box on the mind map.
    2. It would allow the user to find images via the various internet…

  20. Default setting for branch text alignment

    It would be helpful if you could set the default branch text alignment as in v4. I prefer to have my text center aligned on the branch most of the time so I'm finding that I have to realign this with every new branch. Maybe it could be included as part of the style settings?
