Formatting with iMindMap

iMindMap offers you other options in addition to freely organising branches. Via the formatting bar you can set basic features like branch colour, script colour and script size for each branch.

Moreover, iMindMap provides a range of further options for the visual presentation of Mind Maps:

check.png Icon library: You can access over 100 icons of different types. You can add as many as you like to each branch. You can also filter icons.

check.png Image library: Via its image library and an online link iMindMap provides access to thousands of images which can be searched through by keyword. The search function works best with English keywords. Mindjet MindManager provides a limited number of rather stylised graphics, whereas iMindMap offers access to a virtually unlimited number of, unfortunately, not particularly attractive pictures.

check.png Image files: With iMindMap you can incorporate any image files, for example company logos, in your Mind Map.

check.png Relationship arrows: Just as with a pen and paper, with iMindMap you can add relationship arrows between two branches via the Draw menu.
