    • An icon library for software design.

      Produce an icon library that includes requirement icons, use cases, classes etc. The filter mechanism would then make it easy to highlight aspects of the design. From an initial concept it would be easy to create a design to use as input to more formal software approaches. Or allow custom icons and groups as in the "Adding custom icon" suggestion.

        • timeline

          A timeline function would be helpful so I could visually see events which overlap

          • Ability to open Mind Maps in separate windoes

            I would love to be able to open Mind Maps in separate windows, kind of like tabs in a web browser so that you pull out a Mind Map into a separate window and then stick it back in later.

            Reason why, often I want to work on two mind maps side by side drawing ideas from an older one but creating a new mind map at the same time and having to click back and forward is really annoying.

            • FolderScan

              Nice to have a function which scans a folder-structure and creates a mindmap based on it (with all the documents linked to the branches -autom. named by the filename). Great for a Knowledgebase

              • Creating dahsboards - assign categories to tasks

                Starting from a mindmap, it should be possible to drill down on all related mindmaps and collect all tasks thus retrieved into a configurable dashboard. (e.g. arrange tasks per category

                This is very useful as GTD implementation, or as action follow up after a meeting, or project status report, or for face to face with the manager ....

                • Change default font in notes

                  I miss to change the default font and font size in notes. I used notes very often, because it is very helpful to pack lots of information in my mindmap bit still keep it very compact. But the standard default font is not beautiful and very small. I would appreciate an update!

                  • Images should be pinned

                    I just found the "pin" function after upgrading from YEARS ago... Fantastic idea... but it would be better if the images were ALSO pinned. I was working on a final branch, adding images, changing fonts, etc... Got it looking just great... Everything pinned and time to "tidy up" the rest of the map... Wham Bam!! Disaster. The images that were positioned so so carefully.... more than 20 of them. Changed position. I can't explain my anger/frustration at the moment. Any chance of sorting it out?

                    • why are (ultimate)user-created templates - with categorizing and subcategorizing - not exchangeable?

                      i want to be able to create new templates (with categorization) and make them downloadable or exchangeable for other users.
                      Version 6.0 Ultimate user-made templates are stored in the Program Data folders of iMindMap, but they are loaded into iMindMap with an encrypted xml file.
                      Might be interesting to put this in the cloud.

                      • Add a "Commonly used icons" category to the Icons sidebar

                        Add a section at the top of the Icons panel where the user can select the Icons they commonly use.

                        • Improve drawing panel. Drawing tablets users will be greatful.

                          If using drawing tablets with pressure sesitive pen, like my wacom intuos, it gives you a lot more drawing freedom. But curent drawing panel don't allow features like pen pressure sesitivity, different pen and brushes styles- so you are convinced to create only basic drawings! So if I want more comlexive drawing, I have to export .JPEG file from iMindMap to Photoshop for example. Improved drawing panel will allow you to feel more naturaly when drawing things. By the way, I hope developers team may recognise idea of using drawing tablets, recomand it and make it more compatabile with this…

                            • Need a preference for font defaults

                              In iMindMap 7 Ultimate the default font size, font, and font color is not what I want for new branches. But every time I add a branch I have to add a second step to change the font to a smaller point size. Can we have a per-document setting somewhere that we can set these parameters to apply to all new branches.

                                • expand collapse

                                  when i expand a branch it is generally because I have collapsed the other branches and want to work on a particular one - however - expand only expands to the next level - it would be really useful if there was an option to be able to expand everything above a certain branch instead of having to select each sub branch individually

                                  • Better integration with Droptask: set project and get feedback on sent task in map

                                    although a task can be sent to Droptask

                                    1) there is no way to set the project in advance
                                    2) there is no feedback in iMindmap on the mindmap as to the status of the sent task re: started, priority, completed...

                                    These 2 points need fixing - please look at Mindjet's integration with Mindjet Tasks to understand what I mean here...

                                    Please vote for this to get a truly useful integration between mapping and task management.

                                          would really like to be able to quickly copy format from one branch to another (font/size/colour/bold/underline etc) in order to add a different association (ie withiout need to always use a relationship arrow)
                                          Also can we have a key shortcut for relationships?
