  1. 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…

    • 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.

      • 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!!

          • Page size A4 or Letter in Export

            When I export a mindmap to word, it makes the page size US Letter. I don't like that, my default is A4. Is it possible to change this?

              • 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.

                • ENABLE ANIMATED *.GIFS

                  animations are more powerful than pictures- this would take mindmapping to a whole new level.

                  FLOW DIAGRAM ANIMATION PERHAPS: this would save the user from having to create an animated flow diagram via GIF (which at this stage, wouldn't work)

                    • 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.

                      • 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…

                        • 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.

                          • 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…

                            • 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!

                                  I do not understand why the font that is used to display changes when editing. This causes issues if you want to type text that will fit within a given space. It's a very basic bug. Please just let us edit the text as it is - WYSIWYG please! Thanks

                                    When printing branches on seperate sheets, it would be great if like on MS Word, you would then be able to choose which if the resulting pages you actually print.

                                      • Per branch zoom and angle choice en 3D presentation mode

                                        in presentation mode we need to define a zoom value branch per branch. Sometime I have an image in box branch, and would like to see it full screen... and wen in 3D presentation, seeing it full screen full facing. If we could have a way to chose and store a branch zoom and angle, it could be genius to improve presentations.
                                        Thanks for the great job you made on 5.4
                                        Sorry for such a poor english

                                        • boundaries

                                          I want to be able to shape the boundary around a set of branches. The current options give limited scope for creative design.
                                          Please provide a basic envelope with blue handles (to be added deleted as on branches) so that the envelope can be pulled into the desired shape. The existing colour fill and line options should be retained.
