  1. FocucOn/Focus Out mode

    1) Relationship didn't appear in the Focus On map. I added it.
    2) When I Focus back out the relationship now has 2 (the original and the one added while Focus on.
    3) Even with smart layout, it doesn't keep the design when you go to the focus on map. (works better with smart layout and auto condense.)
    4) When in Focus on, had to click on Branch to draw a new branch. (smart layout now distort the layout).

    Takes some effort but you are able to in large maps use focus on to work on a single area and…

  2. drag and drop text

    I'd like to drag and drop text form MS applications, particularly MS-Word.

    I am able to do this from my browser, in my case, Firefox.
    I mark a branch then going over to my browser, mark some text and drag it back to my mind map and drop it on my previously marked branch.

    Please let us do this with Word and other applications.

    Great job you are doing!!

  3. Project mode bugs - v4 maps still not importing correctly

    There still seem to be problems importing v4 maps with project management data. Branches that were not set to 'project managed' mode in v4 seem to have this switched on when imported to v5 and given a default start date of Sep 10th 2009, this then alters the start date of the parent branch from it's original setting (based on the other child branches that were set to 'project managed'). If you swich off 'project managed' for those that shouldn't have it and alter the start and end dates of any child branches as necessary, you still can't seem to…

  4. Copying and pasting branches - text adopts font and colour of new parent branch

    When cutting and pasting a branch, the text adopts the format and colour of the text on the new parent branch I'm attaching it to. I tend to use 2 different colours and fonts for my text so don't usually want it to change to match the branch I'm attaching it to if it's different. V4 allowed you to set whether branch text should match or be a default colour in the preferences. It would be great to have this back in v5 as I find that I constantly have to set text font and colour to get what I…

  5. Saaving the map also saving the zoom status

    Now any time the file is opened to 100% zoom, I suggest to save the zoom factor with save command, or opening the file at the fit factor

  6. 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"

  9. 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.…

  10. Keyboard shortcuts are a mess

    Firstly, couldn't we have the option of having keyboard hotkeys showing in the tool tips?

    It should be possible to minimise the use of the mouse as much as possible by having the keyboard carry out all basic functions in as an intuitive and seamless a way as possible. For example, from a branch Ctrl+T gives you access to the notes pane but you still have to click into the pane to begin typing. Then once you've finished typing you'd at least want the option of going back to the same branch via the keyboard. Pressing Ctrl+T again or Esc…

  11. 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

  12. Color choose palette [Mac]

    When the color of the branch or the text is selected, Color choose palette of the Mac OS X standard is displayed.
    When the operation of the selection of the branch color was going to be done many times, and to select the same color, this is very inconvenient. Because there are a lot of choices.
    I want you to make it to a palette of Ver.4 and a simple same thing.

  13. 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.

  14. 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

  17. 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

  18. 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?

  19. 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?
