  1. Typing math equations

    It would be great if imind-map allows typing of math equations on branches. Right now it is only user-friendly to the business world.

    • import from exel, word , project, powerpoint

      I'm suprised that you haven't included that ability to import from office documents. I see that some mind mapping files from other vendors can be opened but not the office suite.

      I've used MindMapper 2009 previously and that can both import and export from office.

        You’re able to import from MS Word and a range of other Mind Mapping software in iMindMap 10. Plus, you can export to Spreadsheet, Project, Document, Image, PDF and more…

      • Improvement in Central Idea text visualization

        One of Buzan´s main principles is the importance of the Central Idea. I try to follow this by varying as much as possible the central ideas of my mind maps (googling for images). The problem is that I cannot read central idea text if I do not use the options offered by Imindmap. So you should give us the option to put text in othe positions (under or over the image) and to create coloured backgrounds to contrast with the text, so it´s readable.

        • Feature: Link Branch to Branch Across M-Maps

          LINK BRANCH TO BRANCH ACROSS MAPS - I would like the ability to be able to link branches across mind maps. Association arrows are clunky and also not possible with child mind maps. Multiple maps can end up wanting to point to the same topic but it is WITHIN a mindmap on a specific branch. This would be awesome for flexible navigation.

            • Provide a way to change printing preferences

              My default printer settings are set to print in gray scale. However, I often want to print my mindmaps in full color.

              Could you provide a way to manipulate my printer settings very much as I would be able to do in for example MS Word or Excel?

              • We need Pen computing native in the application.

                I have used Mind Manager for 1O+ years and cannot believe I cannot use my Pen Computer native in the application. This needs to change quickly as the pen is the natural extension to the creative mind and the basis on which mindmapping is built.

                  • Enable Windows 'Snap' in iMindmap 8 (so that dragging its window to monitor edges resizes application to half the screen)

                    iMindmap does not (unlike all other windows software I own) allow you to 'snap' to the screen edge.

                    It really enhances productivity to be able to do this (especially on large or wide monitors) as you can with a couple of gestures flip between having two programs displayed side by side (e.g. an email of notes next to a related mindmap) and then with a another gesture have iMindmap fill the screen again.

                    At the moment I have to manually and clunkily resize iMindmap by dragging window edges which feels very 10 years ago ;) Hope you can help. Thanks.

                        • Handwriting recognition & Image Draw on iMindMap Mobile (for Android & iOS)

                          It would be awsome having Handwriting recognition & Image Draw on iMindMap Mobile (for Android & iOS).

                          In the beginning, mind maps were made mainly by hand. At that time, we drawn our own pictures and wrote by hand. I know that nowadays it is possible to insert digital pictures or writing using virtual keyboard. It is good, but it is not productive when you are doing a "real time" mind map (while you are watching a class or a presentation).

                          I suppose iMindMap for Android & iOS could implement these features.
                          Drawing branches by hand is already available. But…

                          • Template Management ->Update, rename and, delete own templates

                            It would be nice to have templates managements with update, rename and delete own templates. Also think about share template features across iMindMap application and services (Android/iPhone/desktop/Freedom...) for ultimate users.

                            I.e. how can I migrate my existing templates to another computer in iMindMap 6? Also how can I share my Snipets?

                            • Embedding external file

                              I knew imx extension is like a archive zip.
                              Imx file contain thumbnail.png,mapmeta.xml,mapappmeta.xml,data.xml and data folder.

                              Put external file(doc,pdf etc) into data folder.
                              It is more manageable better than 'pack & go' function.

                                • Open multiple instances of iMindMap

                                  I should be able to open multiple instances of iMindMap. There are times when I want to look at two mind maps simultaneously. In an age of 64 bit systems with multiple monitors and lots of memory, preventing the user from opening multiple instances of iMindMap is unduly constraining.

                                  • 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.

                                    • Pinch Zoom on Mac

                                      In iMindMap 8 on the Mac, pinch zoom isn't implemented, which is surprising as it is a functionality present in a number of apps and is a natural way of interacting with the diagram.

                                      • Windows Phone 8 and Window 8 App

                                        How about having a Windows Phone 8 and Windows 8 "Metro" style app available when Windows 8 comes out in October. iMindMapper would be awesome on the new Windows 8 platform in full screen mode - particularly on the new Nokia tablets!

                                        • Get rid of Java

                                          Java is the best tool to build the worst user experience on OS X.
                                          Your development team has done wonderful things on iOS.
                                          I hope this will encourage you to also write true OS X applications for future desktop versions.
