  1. Hello Sir Tony Buzan i love using mind maps for explaining things to my frnds n other people...i usu

    Hello Sir Tony Buzan i love using mind maps for explaining things to my frnds n other people...i usually do that by recording the mind map using screen capture softwares like Cam Studio..... i got idea for ur iMind Map software... u can have a screen capture feature in the iMindMap software itself so that people can record videos of their Mind Maps....this would be a great feature in iMindMap.

    • keep the ribbon up to date when you switch tabs

      Have 3 mind maps open in tabs. In one of them click the Relationships button. Switch to another map. Relationships button highlighted but it's really in add-branch mode. Same with 3D - if you are in 3D mode on one map and switch tabs, the 3D icon remains highlighted even if the map you switched to isn't

      • 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

            • Linux Performance

              While the performance of the application on Windows is good (other than the long startup) the performance of the application on Linux is not acceptable. When editing and inserting branches the application is unable to keep up with my typing and it misses key strokes. I am not a fast typist. The screen redraw is too slow. Adding a new branch takes several seconds, even scrolling around the mind map is too slow. Plus there is missing basic functionality in the Linux version that exists in Windows, such as the ability to expand or collapse a single branch.

              • F2 Key for editing in 3D MindMap View

                Please make the F2 key (CTRL+SPACE on Mac) for editing a branch work in 3D MindMap view as well. Currently you have to switch between mouse and keyboard all the time. This is one reason why I often resist to work in 3D view, although I would like to use it.

                • Bug when inserting images in the branch notes

                  I find that when I try to paste an image into the branch notes, it seems to do it at such a large size that it's impossible to see all of it (I think it pastes the image in the same manner as a background image for a map - full screen size). The inspector doesn't seem to let you scroll to see any other part of the image and you don't seem to be able to resize the image with the image tools either.

                  Can this be made to work as it did in V4?

                  • font formatting in ribbon

                    I notice the font formatting is not displayed correctly in the ribbon.

                    Sometimes it is difficult to see whether text is in BOLD or not .

                    The font formatting ribbon is not updated when text is selected.

                        • 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.

                              • Gradient colouring for MindMap background, central ideas and boxbranches

                                Hello,

                                i find it helpfull to have a gradient colouring option for the MindMap background, the central idea picture and the boxbranches - for business like "straight line mapping" it would be helpfull although i'm not a friend of this "straight line mapping" programs like MindManager but it would be a good option to implement such a function.

                                BTW: it would be nice if i can add a background image instead of only a background color to my MindMmap.

                                Michael

                                    • 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?

                                      • Entering pixel dimensions on image export

                                        If I want to manually change the pixel dimensions on the image export, I would expect that I could enter the width and press tab to have iMindMap calculate the other dimension so as to maintain the aspect ratio. That doesn't happen for width. Also, I would expect High Definition preset to be a little higher.

                                        • 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.…
