  1. 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.

    • Provide a way to add application specific links.

      I use Evernote as a reference system and love to do direct links on these notes. The links look like this e.g. evernote:///view/9939548/s90/a2503f3b-1d40-4337-b277-66ad0fe9ad18/a2503f3b-1d40-4337-b277-66ad0fe9ad18/

      There are a few other applications in my portfolio with the same way to reference into artefacts inside the applications.

      • Keyboard shortcuts all well and good. But...

        I've noticed that while there are some 'real' shortcuts built into iMindMap (Ctrl prefixed, or Function Key related) - there is no option to use Alt-prefixed keystrokes to operate the menus/ribbons. This makes iMindMap useless for me, since as a 'keyboard krazy' (not a 'mouse maniac') I endeavour to use all software with minimum departure from the keyboard where I am (touch) typing my input fast and furious!!

        Sorry, but this rules iMindMap out as an alternative to MindManager for me.

          • import from exel, word , project, powerpoint

            I'm suprised that you haven't included that ability to import from office documents. I see that some mind mapping files from other vendors can be opened but not the office suite.

            I've used MindMapper 2009 previously and that can both import and export from office.

            • Adding custom icon

              I am using imind map 5. I Icons are a great way to add graphical depth. Is there a way to add new icons(made by me) to icon library of imindmap 5.

              • improve notes view

                In iMindMap 4, notes appear close to the branch you're interested in and at a sensible size. In 5 they appear in a tall thin window on the right of the screen which can be far from the relevant branch and is painful for notes better suited to landscape format (eg images). The HTML tab was useful too. ps entering these comments doesn't work very well in IE9, I get a tiny box in a very tall thin window.

                • 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.

                    • Editable backgrounds

                      At the moment, all of my mindmaps are displayed on the standard white background. I was thinking that it would be really good if I could select a custom background so that when the mindmap is saved as a PNG, there is a clear background which frames the mindmap and doesnt see it floating in space if it is uploaded to a website with a white background.

                      At the moment, if you look at one of my mindmaps on www.otstudent.info they are all floating.

                      I'd like to have them on a 'graph paper' or 'lined paper' style background that make…

                            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?

                            • 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.

                              • 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…

                                • Default setting for branch text alignment

                                  It would be helpful if you could set the default branch text alignment as in v4. I prefer to have my text center aligned on the branch most of the time so I'm finding that I have to realign this with every new branch. Maybe it could be included as part of the style settings?

                                    • I'm wondering why I can't put text on the branch of a Box Branch - this seems like a useful addition

                                      I'm wondering why I can't put text on the branch of a Box Branch - often I would like to write a word or two on the branch and then add further detail into a box. What do you think?

                                        This could be a useful feature but would have to be carefully implemented as to not cause confusion when selecting where the text will go (at the moment it always goes in the box).

                                        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...
