Thank you!

Any ideas you have that don't fit into other categories...

You've used all your votes and won't be able to post a new idea, but you can still search and comment on existing ideas.

There are two ways to get more votes:

  • When an admin closes an idea you've voted on, you'll get your votes back from that idea.

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

If a similar idea already exists, you can support and comment on it.

If it doesn't exist, you can post your idea so others can support it.

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

  1. 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…

  2. FLOWCHART CREATION

    Please consider making flowcharts easier. If you start with a flowchart item and you would like to add another one, please make it so there are aligned perfectly center to the one previous. It can be to the bottom by default as you have it but when one is creating these flowcharts you must manually align all items. At least have an alignment tool as found on most photo and graphics tools.

  4. Spell Check Notes

    Please allow the spell check to check the notes section.

    I use lots of notes with my mind maps and rely heavily on the spell check feature throughout my mind map processing.

  5. Magnifying glass - zooming

    When I have a very big mind map with zillions of connections between branches, I want to see the big picture by zooming out, but I also want to see the texts in each branch. And if I zoom in enough to see the text, I lose sight of the whole mind map structure.

    Would you please offer us a magnifying glass kind of tool? What is on my mind is, when I zoom out to see the whole picture, I have a magnifying circle which allows me to see the tiny texts. In this way, I don't have to…

  6. Add icons, notes, links, documents etc. to flowchart items

    The new flowchart drawing feature is great in iMindMap 6. And I think it would be even better if I could add everything which I can add to a branch (notes, icons, links, documents, etc.) also to a flowchart item.

  8. Add Merge Format function in Note

    I use Imindmap quite a lot (more than 5 hours / day)
    And the main job is Creating a simple minmdap with many branches
    In every branches , I add a note by copy and paste from other sources
    Because of many sources, the Format becoms CRAZY
    If in Microsoft Word , I just use Merge Format, every text I copy from other program become suit to the available text.
    Set Format as default is also very important for me.
    I'm still using Iminmap 7 because all upgrade versions haven't met my need.
    by the way, I'm willing to pay…

  11. rejoining branches

    It does not seem possible to join two different branches. This makes it difficult to use the program for note taking, brainstorming for narrative writing, and for, well, mind mapping.

  12. Tooltips in iMindmap8 when hovering over icons etc.

    There doesn't seem to be any tooltips when I hover over toolbar icons etc. which is a shame as it would speed up my learning of the product. I'm left with no idea what some of the things do - and pressing F1 doesn't bring up any help either.

  14. default relationship format

  15. Improve Software Quality

    Please standardize the keyboard inputs between views. In Mind Map view, pressing tabs adds a new branch. In fast capture just typing adds a new node. However, if you forget that and press tab nothing seems to happen. When you start typing again, nothing happens. You have to click back on the node to add a child node. So much for the keyboard-only simplification there!

    Also, when pressing the delete key on a branch it deletes just that branch and anything beyond it. In Fast Capture mode, pressing delete on a node deletes the PARENT node and all of its…

  16. Real 3D (Universal 3d)

    sorry if it's already written...
    can you make a real 3d way to draw mind maps, like creating new stars in a constellation (branch), new constellations in the galaxy, new galaxies (child maps)...
    like it is inside our brains... I think we could memorize locations the same naturally way as in 2D mind maps...

  17. Switching back from other applications to iMindMap

    When browsing the internet I like to take notes in iMindmap. But Alt-Tab often does not bring me back to iMindMap. Sometimes it does sometimnes not. Often iMindmap is selected as long as Alt is pressed. At the moment that Alt is released i Find myself back in the original application. Same thing with selecting iMindmap on the task bar sometimes it does appear, sometimes nothing happens.

  18. Whiteboard

    I would like to be able to draw freehand on top of the map while presenting. I teach and it would be beneficial to not just have the software be to look at, but click and draw on the map using a connected drawing pad (I'm controlling iMindMap on my laptop with my iPad and could easily draw with my stylus on the ipad to connect ideas in real time or jot down words on the screen.

  19. Have "strikethrough" as a font option

    Have the "strikethrough" font feature similar to the "Bold" and "Italics" buttons. This allows one to "cross off" items. (ie for historical purposes / plans changed but must be kept for history / completed the item or no longer relevant)
