  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.

  2. 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.

  3. 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.

  7. 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?

  9. 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.

  10. The ability to export maps as images WITH AN HTML IMAGE-MAP generated as well. Highly functional mindmaps easily become webpages.

    You have these working on your own web pages so must be able to see how they are very very useful!

    I build online courses for schools and essentially most of the pages I build are mindmaps with links on them to task templates, videos, other sites etc. At present I use mindjet's mindmapping software that has this option, but would much prefer to use my copy of iMindmap as it is clearly so much better in most other ways.

    I don't believe I am the first to ask for this relatively simple feature. I know there are other ways…

  11. Request from a Mac user:

    Features that I would like to see in Imindmap 5:
    1: Use of apple remote.
    More often than not, I am moving around while presenting a new idea or a projekt, and I often find it tiresome to have to walk back to my macbook and press a button to be able to go to the next "branch". Keynote accepts input from the apple remote and it is a standard feature in Xcode.

    2: Pinch to zoom in/out
    Mac has multitouch support, and while dealing with large mindmaps, it quite easily gets very tiresome to navigate down and press zoom…

  12. Quicker mapping / navigation on Mac

    Mapping in v5 is slower than v4 for a few reasons for me. (2011 MacBookPro 13")

    1) Arrow keys don't move among the branches (as in the docs), they scroll the screen. This forces use of the mouse. A bug?

    2) Scrolling is *very* slow. When zoomed in to the map it take a long time to scroll to the other side.

    3) In speed mind mapping in v4, simply typing created a new child branch. This is great as it is one of the most common tasks. Now I must first type command-enter which is actually slower.

    Now when…

  13. Draw branches from specific parts of the central idea picture.

    You should be able to draw branches from specific points of the central idea. For example if I have a picture of the skin I want to be able to draw a branch from the epidermis, from the dermis, etc. In this version and the others it is not possible.

  15. Keyboard shortcuts are a mess

    Firstly, couldn't we have the option of having keyboard hotkeys showing in the tool tips?

    It should be possible to minimise the use of the mouse as much as possible by having the keyboard carry out all basic functions in as an intuitive and seamless a way as possible. For example, from a branch Ctrl+T gives you access to the notes pane but you still have to click into the pane to begin typing. Then once you've finished typing you'd at least want the option of going back to the same branch via the keyboard. Pressing Ctrl+T again or Esc…

  18. Printing notes associated with branches

    I would like an option to print the notes associated with branches. Ideally IMindMap should format / index
    my printed notes according to my branch hierarchy...

  20. Able to have a blank line between paragraphs in Text Boxes

    At the moment if you hit enter twice and start a new paragraph, while editing the box you will have a blank line between paragraphs but once you hit enter to finalize the text the blank line disappears. This can make lists or segments in one box hard to read.
