  1. 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.

    • 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.

      • 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.

        • extension api support

          would love to see the support of api to accomplish integration and workflow automation.
          where users / developers can develop and share within the community. (can force to open source everything for security purposes )

              • 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.

                  • default relationship format

                    I never use dashed lines. This means that every time I add a relationship I have to go through formatting. I would like to set those as an option

                    • 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…

                      • 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...

                        • 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.

                            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.

                              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)

                                  Now, I need to press the sync button in the cloud maps window. It would be perfect if the syncing is automatic and in the background, so I don't have to remember to press the button. Thanks!

                                  • Grouping of flowchart parts.

                                    Most applications that work with shapes, allow you to sellect multiple shapes, then "Group" them. Once grouped, they can be resized, copied, moved, as a group.

                                        • provide better functionality for high resolution screens

                                          Using high resolution screens (3800*1800 or so), the open and save dialogues often get unreadably small. Please provide better ways to scale those.
