  1. 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

  3. 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

  5. Format painter

    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?

  6. Exporting/printing Gantt charts & tables

    The inability either to export Gantt charts and tables as PDFs or to print them in a readable size is a severe limitation when working with clients who have not (yet) purchased Mind Map software. You appear to have two related suggestions called "Extensibility" and "Printing" respectively.

  7. 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…

  8. 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.

  10. Real 3D (Universal 3d)

    sorry if it's already written...
    can you make a real 3d way to draw mind maps, like creating new stars in a constellation (branch), new constellations in the galaxy, new galaxies (child maps)...
    like it is inside our brains... I think we could memorize locations the same naturally way as in 2D mind maps...

  12. 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).

  13. 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. …

  14. 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…

  15. 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

  16. 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?

  17. 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.

  20. 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.
