The child can be anywhere not exactly beside the parent, I can drag it far or close. This allows me to shape the mind map as i see fit.
you can use shift+drag to pull nodes far or close (http://blog.mindmup.com/2013/09/use-shiftdrag-to-manually-position-nodes.html) – how is what yuo propose different from that?
I would simply like to have enough control to move the nodes where I want to balance the image and make use of space.79 votes
Would be great to expand/collapse a node with a single click, this is standard on all mind mapping tools I have used. Thanks.79 votes
Being able to generate a basic calendar from nodes would be very nice. Ideally that calendar would be able to sync to ical and etc.
I find the small lines between nodes quite small. In the official Tony Buzan interpretation of mindmapping:
"The central lines are thicker, organic and flowing, becoming thinner as they radiate out from the centre."
As for the organic and flowing part: well done. However, line thickness stresses the importance of a node and as such, I'd like to have it in mindmup 2.0!72 votes
The current color palette is limited and not aesthetically pleasing. I'd love to be able to go to (for example) colourlovers.com and find a palette that I like, and apply that palette to my map.
A good start to this would be to add CSS classes for colors 1 - 35, eg: .mapjs-color-1, .mapjs-color-2, .mapjs-color-3, etc. The color chooser widget should then use these class names to apply the color instead of the explicit RGB code. Then I could grap the color codes from colourlovers and use that to create a new palette.70 votes
while this is getting votes, you can just press shift+space and type in a color name or enter the hex code to apply any color to a node, not just the ones in the palette

At the moment you are very limited in where you can place Parents and Children-Perhaps introduce a "free" mode where you can place the Parents and Children wherever you want without everything automatically altering68 votes
Clicking a "link" button on the node jumps to a different node. Much like the anchor tags in HTML.
It would be really useful if I could do this by clicking specific text within the node. For instance, if the node said "Causes of shortness of breath: Asthma, CHF, Anemia, etc." I would like to click the text "asthma" and it jumps to the parent Asthma node somewhere else in the map and displays all it's siblings.65 votes
For large trees it'd be nice to have a shortcut key that in one key press:
1) centered & zoomed on the selected node
2) collapsed the sibling nodes to "focus" the view on the selected sub-branch64 votes
Endless Scroll. Would be great to see endless scroll functionality here allowing you to center the map at any location.

Could we have a chat window incorporated into the collaboration sessions along with a way to add comments that stay with the session after it's closed (without adding a node) kind of like Google docs does now? I think this would improve the collaboration capabilities a lot!54 votes
what kind of comments would you like to leave? can you give us a few examples? how would that improve the collab capabilities?
Why: to enrich the nodes with additional structured data, so the mind map can be used for importing/exporting purposes. Freemind has the same feature where you can switch the visibility of the attributes.54 votes
Keyboard junkies will thank you for Z and Shift+Z, but most natural / popular and fast way of zooming "around maps" is via mouse-wheel.
It might interfere with touch-pad scroll/pan, but if you implement both - there will happy users instead of frustrated ones.50 votes
Well like you tube you have Dark Mode and im on this 247 making maps and ideas for my work. My eyes hurt. If their was eye rest. Or a Dark mode would be amazing !!! Please Add49 votes
The text in the node should be complemented with icons of degree of importance, progress, or simply to add images to expand the idea in the node. Every mind mapping software has this feature48 votes
As far as I can see, the user interface is only available in English. This is be a big hurdle for those people that don't speak English. The user should be able to choose the interface language and the choice should stick between sessions.
Ideally the language could be specified as part of the access URL, so we can give it away to our users and be sure they will be accessing the application in the right language from the start.46 votes
I already commented on some other idea in this forum with this, but I think this is really important. Many mind mapping tools are using so called notes view (node attachment in mindmup), but they are all doing it wrong. Maybe you think this is a bold statement, but with 15+ years of mindmapping experience I can assure you that notes (mindmup attachments) are integral part of any mindmapping/writing creative process. MindMap is visual way of structuring informations, but equally important is sequential (text) representation, which is after all final product of most export operations. The only software which is offering such approach is Inspiration software (http://www.inspiration.com/Inspiration) where you can switch between visually structured information (diagram/mindmap) and text(outline) representation. I would really like to have it side-by-side, but Inspiration will never implement this. So I strongly suggest to MindMup dev team to consider such outline view (or upgrade storyboard view, which is great) with content from node attachment. Please vote for this suggestion and make MindMup best mindmapping tool ever.

We just did an update for writing notes and text content in MindMup 2.0 that is, I believe, similar to this request. How far is what you’re asking for from this: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lLZqv9aBVUo
