  1. Get rid of Java

    Java is the best tool to build the worst user experience on OS X.
    Your development team has done wonderful things on iOS.
    I hope this will encourage you to also write true OS X applications for future desktop versions.

    • branches creation order - clockwise or anticlockwise

      iMindMap has a singular way for creating branches, inserting new branches balanced between right and left sides.
      I like it but I suggest you improve it, making possible creating branches in clockwise and anticlockwise orders. That's interesting when you are creating mind maps where branches order is important and needs to be followed to make sense (a procedure mind map, for example, where each branch is a step of the procedure).

      The user could configure between traditional way, clockwise and anticlockwise orders.

      Please consider it for future upgrades.

      • Superscript and Subscript Characters

        I notice that this was requested in version 6 as well. Can this be implemented into the current version 7 as ab update? In fact, is there a way that ThinkBuzan's iMindMap can communicate with DesignScience's MathType program so that mathematical equations can be entered into branches and text boxes? I know that may be a bit of a jump from just wanting to add subscript and superscript characters but I can see that being a question in the future.

        • 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…

          • DropBox etc support needed in mobile versions of iMindMap

            Although I appreciate that iMindMap Cloud allows me to sync mind maps between my Mac and my iPad, I do not like having to have my mind maps completely segregated from all my other files. I would like to be able to store them in a DropBox folder and then open and edit them via DropBox on my iPad or Android phone.

            • 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…

              • Be able to "Attach" a file rather than just hyperlink to an existing file.

                I'd like to see the ability to "Attach" a file in addition to hyperlinking a file. Is there any current mechanism, other than cut and paste for attaching a file to a branch?

                • 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.

                  • More Variety in backgrounds

                    It would be nice to have much more variety in regards to backgrounds. I would like to be able to make my own backgrounds as well or be able to set the background with a picture of my own.

                    • Integration with anki

                      By integrating with anki (a flash card system with an algorithm that reminds you to review you cards before you forget them. This is very handy if you have a couple of thousand flash cards.) If you could make you map and maybe at the end of a branch chain you could have a question option. By making a question this would then save it into a dec (You could build multiple decks for different subjects). When you finish making your map and want to review your work and previous work you then go to a review option. This would…

                        • Allow Flow charts to bre integrated into the mind map

                          I have been trying to integrated the flow chart with the mind map. I am able to create the flow chart independently in the same mind map canvas, however I am not able to integrate it in the mind map meaning that I cannot start a flowchart at the node on the mind map. Also I cannot use the wonderful icons from the mind map liberary in the flow diagrams. This integration will greatly enhance the mindmappers ability to get an entire project and its components and details and also distinguish iMindMap from other such applicationws.

                          • Find doesn't seem to work when you attach a note to a branch.

                            Find doesn't seem to work when you attach a note to a branch. If you store lots of information in notes attached to each branch (which is very useful) you have to remember where you put it because the "Find" feature can't locate it.

                              • mouse wheel zoom - zoom steps

                                Zooming steps should be relativ (to the present zoom size) not absolut.
                                Now, it zooms up or down by fix absolut 35%.
                                That is fine at higher zoom levels (above ~150%).
                                With larger maps, hence at smaller zoom levels, it too much.
                                From 65% one mouse wheel notch down jumps to 30%! Less than half of before. That is unusable.

                                Proposal:
                                1 mouse wheel notch should be:
                                - for up + 33% (relative)
                                from 100% to 133%, from 60% to 80%, from 30% to 40%
                                - for down - 25% (relativ)

                                • 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…

                                      • 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...
