  1. Sketch: bucket feature

    It would be nice when adding a feature like the fill bucket known from simple paint programs. I really miss this feature.

      • Indexing contents of mindmaps

        It is necessary to approach to information instantly.
        If I need to find some information, I have to open mindmap one by one. It's nonsense. I made hundred of mindmap. How I can find information among the huge information pile. It's a real nonsense.
        Because of that, I regret that I purchased Ultimate version of IMINDMAP 6.

        • Add % project progress directly in the branch

          In every branch of the project, you must see the percentage of project progress. Without opening each time the panel projects.

          • shortcut keys improvements

            Hi,

            1st, I would like to suggest you implement shortcut keys for 2 features:
            1- "clean"
            2- "converter branch format" features

            2nd, I guess there are other features that are not mapped on shortcut keys. It would be awsome if we had all features available by shortcut keys, so we could be able to edit mindmaps on full screen mode without needing changing to editing mode.

            3rd, maybe it could be interesting making possible that the user configure his owns shortcut keys, so the user could configure it as it likes.

            4th, i suggest you show the mapped shortcut keys…

              • Exporting/printing Gantt charts & tables

                The inability either to export Gantt charts and tables as PDFs or to print them in a readable size is a severe limitation when working with clients who have not (yet) purchased Mind Map software. You appear to have two related suggestions called "Extensibility" and "Printing" respectively.

                • Improve project planning interface

                  Right now I find the user interface quite poor to really go for using the project planning functions. A few thinks I encounter and could not find a solution for:
                  - Re-order tasks in the activity breakdown structre. It seems to follow the order in which an activity has been entered into the mindmap.
                  - schedule and link groups of activities and let the detailed activities start no sooner than the group it belongs to
                  - When predecessors have been entered to an activity, overrule any user defined start dates. Once a start date has been entered, the end-to-start settings…

                  • Images via URL

                    As someone who uses quite a lot of images for mind maps (and finding the native "image search" quite random/ineffectual) I was wondering if it is possible have an option to use image URLs when inserting images? I think this would be beneficial for two main reasons:

                    1. Most people have online image libraries or albums and they would then just have to right click on the image to copy the its URL and then paste it into the appropriate image selection box on the mind map.
                    2. It would allow the user to find images via the various internet…

                    • Color choose palette [Mac]

                      When the color of the branch or the text is selected, Color choose palette of the Mac OS X standard is displayed.
                      When the operation of the selection of the branch color was going to be done many times, and to select the same color, this is very inconvenient. Because there are a lot of choices.
                      I want you to make it to a palette of Ver.4 and a simple same thing.

                        • 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.

                          • it is worse to write the box branch in chinese language

                            It can not auto fold the sentence with the box size when typing Chinese text in imindmap 6. All the sentences will be show in long line, and it is difficult to edit. but with imindmap 5, it is ok to type and intelligence fold the sentences with the box width.

                            • Fullscreen option for iMindMap 8

                              Fullscreen option for iMindMap 8. The fullscreen options (and skins) seems to be removed from iMindMap 8 (it was possible to go to fullscreen in version 7). Can you please add this feature?

                              In addition, "night mode" where everything expect text is dark would be nice as it is better for the eyes.

                                  • Disable pop up menu

                                    When a cursor hovers at the end of a branch, iMindmap 10 will show a menu to move, edit branch, setting icons and etc. Sometimes they are so annoying because they interfere when I try to edit the connections between branches, such as changing the shape of the connection. I would love to have a shortcut to disable the pop up menu temporarily so I can focus on editing the connections.

                                      • Make inserted images scalable

                                        It would be very useful when inserted images would be scalable. In this case, the ratio of the length and width would remain in tact. It will be greatly appreciated if you can reduce or enlarge the image by entering a percentage.

                                        • Add a search function on your website!

                                          I find your website, and especially the support function, exceptionally frustrating due to the lack of a search/find function. JUST for one minor example, in your imindmap5_install_pc.pdf, you say, "If you are having problems registering the software . . . you can use our Manual Activation System. . . . Please login to your ThinkBuzan account and go to Desktop Serials and you will find the
                                          instructions to our Manual Activation System."

                                          IF ONLY!

                                          Same thing with so many functions. You lack a thorough user's guide for the software, so we are left to bumble around on our own or…
