  1. Inserting images

    When inserting images I find sometimes there are no options available in the image library. If I change the name in the image library field, this edits the branch....so I can not search on synonyms or other appropriate words.
    Can you allow me to enter synonyms in this search please?

      • Automatically add file name to footer

        In iMindMap 5 I can add a footer to my printout: File > Print > Page Setup (beneath the Scale to page button). This gives me a dialog with one tab called Margins. In the lower half of this dialog I can add a header and a footer to my printed MindMap.

        In this box I can fill in the file name manually, but I would like the possibility to use a code for the file name (with or without path). Or even better: a checkbox to add the file name to the footer.

        • 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?

          • Online images do not insert

            It seems that any images from the online library do not insert into a mindmap.

            • 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

                • 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

                      • make relationships easier to manage

                        if I drag from the target of one branch to the target of another existing branch, it would be nice to interpret that as wanting a relationship between branches. In 4.1 it used to create a weird connected branch, it does nothing in 5. I wouldn't mind holding down the ctrl key to indicate that's what I wanted, saves finding the home tab and clicking the relationship icon.

                            At the moment our image library isn’t categorised in the way that would allow this, but it would be a useful addition when we update this system

                          • Customized Quick Access Toolbar not saved

                            The first time, I set some individual buttons to the Quick Access Toolbar, my settings were not saved.
                            The toolbar was completely empty with the next start of iMindMap V5.
                            The second time I tried again some changes. This time the settings were saved. Randomly behaviour?

                            • Remember view settings.

                              Save Mind Map and Project (tier) view settings. It's tedious having to reset these each time a file is opened - especially when having to update multiple files each day.

                              • Make reference lines alwasy on top of others (that is, 'apply bring to front')

                                Hello!

                                Could you please consider an option of making reference (relationship) lines to be always on top of all branches. Currenly, reference arrows are often hidden by branches. Unfortunately, cannot add screen shot here.

                                  Hi Alexey,

                                  Thanks for your feedback, unfortunately there is no way to bring the relationship branches to the front at this time however I have passed this onto the development team to see if this is something that we can include in the future.

                                  Many thanks,
                                  Thom

                                  Maybe this a Microsoft issue, but it seems that the only documents on my computer that I can't link to are specific emails in Outlook folders. Any ideas, apart from saving each email as a separate PDF document?

                                    When exporting to Powerpoint it would be great to be able to include childmaps. Now I have to export each map in turn and build the presentation manually afterwards.

                                    • Font size maximum capped at 42

                                      In V4 font size went to 72. Another strange strange change. I would think this should be editable to be whatever font you desire up to some maximum rather than the selection of 20 or so up to 42
