Three kinds of branch

If you click on Draw in the symbols bar, you will notice that iMindMap distinguishes between three kinds of branch, shown in Figure 11-4:

Clearly the designers of iMindMap realised that many software users don’t stick to the one-word rule but want to use more than one keyword per branch. This is possible with box branches.

remember.eps Although you should only insert one word per branch when Mind Mapping, text-field branches can be useful, for example, for quotations or inserting larger chunks of text.
