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:
Organic branches: These look like they’ve been drawn by hand, but iMindMap helps you with positioning the branches.
Freehand branches: You’re completely free to determine the shape of branches, just as you’d draw them with a stylus on the screen. iMindMap doesn’t provide support here but allows you complete creative freedom.
Box branches: These let you write several lines of sentences on a branch. Information is placed in a text box. 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.
