    • Why not WBS in iMindmap, like in Mindview?

      iMindmap could improve with WBS feature-- equipping the users with their project planning.

      • Tidy up spreadsheet insert

        Would be good to be able to determine the 'rectangle' that needs to be inserted into the iMindmap.

        Currently there is a large spreadsheet inserted even if say only 4x4 table used (see attachment).

        • Retaining spreadsheet

          I use iMM5 on a MacBookPro, Mac OSX Snowleopard. I created a spreadsheet via 'Insert', edited it, saved it so it appeared in the main screen linked to a branch. I clicked the spreadsheet again for an extended edit which I performed, saved the spreadsheet again and closed it, just like the first time, expecting it to show up behind its branch. No such luck, though, as it had disappeared for good, without notification.
          A few remarks.
          1st - the spreadsheet has only limited editing-functionality. E.g. inserting rows or columns is not possible and causes a lot of extra work. …

            • Copying and pasting branches - text adopts font and colour of new parent branch

              When cutting and pasting a branch, the text adopts the format and colour of the text on the new parent branch I'm attaching it to. I tend to use 2 different colours and fonts for my text so don't usually want it to change to match the branch I'm attaching it to if it's different. V4 allowed you to set whether branch text should match or be a default colour in the preferences. It would be great to have this back in v5 as I find that I constantly have to set text font and colour to get what I…

              • extensibility

                lack of options on export renders Word/Excel etc export effectively unusable for me, they don't fit in with corporate templates. don't expect you to do this out of the box, but an extensibility API, scripting, document template or customisable template would suffice. I guess I could parse data.xml but this is not the same as a published interface

                • Keyboard shortcut for expanding and collapsing individual branching.

                  Please develop a keyboard shortcut to collapse or expand individual child branches. I do a lot of speedmapping using the keyboard shortcuts, however I am slowed by having to remove my hands from the keyboard to use the mouse to expand or collapse child branches.

                  • customizable right toolbar

                    The right toolbar (that one who shows Notes, Images, Icons, Links, etc options) occupies an important space on the screen.
                    That's not a big problem for large displays, but could be a problem for people like me, who uses compact laptops.
                    On 1024x768 display, iMindMap is not able to show all options in a single column, so the toolbar occupies two columns, making editing area smaller than it could be.

                    So, I would like to ask you implement this suggestion (or another one who solves this problem):
                    Suggestion: Make right toolbar options customizable. So I could choose on iMindMap properties…

                    • Toolbars in Mac

                      I am using a Mac that has limited toolbar content. Your videos show comprehensive toolbars. When will this be possible on a Mac. Also, v4 allowed, in preferences, user defined color progression of main branches, will this be forthcoming?

                        • When I open the Branch Ordering outline, it has pluses and minuses like explorer in Windows.

                          It always opens with the complete outline so If I want to reorder the main topics, it takes forever to move them up or down, and it always opens them with the details - every topic shown or open, Please make it like windows, so it alwasy opens with the plus sign, all closed until I want to see what is in that topic. Now it is very frustrating to order my topics. I am doing this for a book, and I am trying to place the chapters in the order I want.

                                • Filter Export, Print

                                  The filters have no effect on export, print of table/gantt.
                                  That makes it impossible to use iMindMap as collection tool for multiple categorized informations.

                                  Example: In a project map I need to add purchase items at different levels. As there is no category field, I use symbols for filtering this items.
                                  To generate a purchase list it´s necessary to export or print this items (including the notes) as list or text or export only this filtered items to droptask.

                                  Another option would be a deeper export to excel which includes the notes and symbol names, but the excel export is…

                                  • Fix the flex nodes on the branches

                                    When I adjust the branches manually via the circle dots on the branches, sometimes these dots come off onto the screen. The effect is that after while, one has little circles everywhere on the mind map. It would be great if this could be fixed.

                                        • Add 'owner' to a task

                                          It would be helpful if working a project with a group of people, if you could add a name off an 'owner' to a task in the project-mode. This way everyone has a clear view of what is expected of him/her.
