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.
The alt thing is great, but it's not documented, as of 5.2 online help.

I learned yesterday that holding the Alt key is a shortcut for drawing a relationship. But I agree that more available anchor points would be an improvement.

rsettle, you are right - relationship arrows now do not fully serve the Buzan's intended purpose I'm afraid - they cannot point to e.g. a single word or an image, and the line text apparently cannot be moved or be shown perpendicular to the line. In addition they seem not to be considered a part of a map - when I press "fit to screen" button, they usually land behind the screen.
Be nice if there were more anchor points than just the start/end of a branch too, eg the middle of a branch, and if you could have a gap between the end of the relationship arrow and the branch it's pointing to, and if you could move a relationship line (maybe you can but it always seems to select the branch target when you try and select the end of a relationship)
