What should we focus on next?

MindMup is community driven, so we’ll work on what our users want the most. For best results, please:
- Formulate ideas as work objectives (explain why, not just what/how). For example, ‘collaborate with friends remotely’ is much better than asking for ‘google realtime v2.0 integration’
- Do not submit stuff anonymously. We want to discuss your proposal with you if it gets votes, and anonymous submissions don’t allow us to do that. Ideas submitted anonymously will most likely be closed.

  1. Node Attachment View

    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…

  2. Ability to dill down on a node to create a sub-mindmap

    When creating mind maps they can become very large with lots of children nodes linking ideas. To help this problem it is really useful to dill down on a child node to create a sub-mindmap, in the sub-mindmap the child become the parent node in the centre, and all its child nodes are shown. This means you can create one large mind map and dill down onto set topics or area you are working on. A software called "xmind" does this but it doesn't link to google drive.

    Keep up the good work guys :)

    while this is getting votes, just a quick note that this is already available as a three-step process:
    1) use ctrl+x (or cmd+x on mac) to cut a subtree
    2) Use File→new from clipboard (potentially in a new mindmup window) to create a new map from the cut tree. Save it and copy the URL from the browser
    3) paste the URL into the original map as a new node – this will link to the new map

  3. Free dragging

    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.
    Thanks

  4. Provide alternative outline view

    There are times when I visualize things as a hierarchical list and there are other times I'd visualize the tree graphically.

    hi,

    you can create an outline now by doing file→export to local disk→text (or html). the text export creates a tab separated outline, which you can load easily in excel. the html outline creates a doc that you can load in a browser or with word/similar text editors.

    How is the proposal different from the current feature?

  5. chat window and/or comments in collaboration

    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!

  6. Don't lose my data with a Jean-Luc Picard Facepalm

    Is Mindmup a sensible, professional platform, or should we look elsewhere?

    Just saying "doh" isn't good enough, clear recovery instructions to prevent data loss - and better still stopping / ensuring recovery automatically are what is needed.

    Imagine Google's share price if they started to show a Patrick Stewart gif in response to temporary errors or made so little effort to ensue important information is recoverable.

    This has showed up at work on our very stable internet connection, while I'm capturing notes in a meeting, I won't make that mistake again.

  7. Need the ability to selectively print notes

    I need the ability to print only the notes at or below the selected node. This would allow MindMup to become a powerful manuscript/proposal writing tool.

    while this is getting votes, there is a workaround — export the outline into word, tick checkboxes to include notes and tick the checkbox to start from a selected node.

    outline exports support getting part of a map already, and also support including notes into the export. the only downside is that you will get titles in the export for nodes without any notes.

  8. Node order - clockwise and counterclockwise

    For me is Quite important to have mind map nodes in counterclockwise order, as my brain works that way :)
    ( I know that Tony Buzan recommendation is clockwise).
    This become very clear when you do presentation(with children) or export. Nodes in mindmup are ordered this way: first right side - clockwise, then left side - counterclockwise. It brings a lot of confusion to me, when I want to build presentation.
    Could you please consider clockwise and counterclockwise ordering functions for all nodes in mindmup?
    Please vote for this and make mindmup best MM tool ever!

  9. Toggle between story board and map

    I would like a keystroke that toggled between a selected story board item and the same item (or items in the case of a bulleted entry) in the map.

  10. Add error message when trying to save to github without first initializing oauth

    The feature at first did not seem to work for me: After enabling github extension, and press "File -> save as -> GitHub", nothing happens. I tried on both FF and chrome, on two distinct windows 7 computers. Am I missing something, or is the feature broker ?

    However, after trying to rather choose "File->import > open from github", then I was proposed to grant mindmup oauth github scopes, and from then "save" seems to work.

    Would be great to warn the user trying to save a map without first initializing through import, that (s)he should first init through trying…

  11. (Un)Fold Nodes Faster on Large Maps

    On maps with dozens or more nodes, folding and unfolding nodes takes about 5 seconds. Seems like it's maybe checking all the child nodes, to see their fold/unfolded state and how much space they take up? Or all the nodes on the map? Either way, makes working with large maps difficult.

    P.S.
    Hopefully this isn't a duplicate. Couldn't find anything with various searches for "fold", "folding", "collapse", "collapsing", "faster", etc

  12. Add citation extension.

    I often use mindmup to keep research notes. It would be great if we could label each node with the source that it comes from, in some easy way.

  13. Nodes TAG update!

    Nodes.. I must write them everytime if the same! I suggest a way to modify one for modifying everyone! with the same "tag" so The "node" is updated! And If I wanna use It anywhere.. It will be displayed and I don't need to have a copy everytime with the risk to forget about updating one!!

    (I'm not talking of numbers! measurements are good but doesn't show nodes, only numbers!)

  14. Drag and drop all selected nodes

    Currently, when multiple nodes are selected and dragged on another node, only one of the selected nodes is moved.
    It would be better to be able to move all of the selected nodes to the destination node at the same time (like with Freemind)

  15. keep special characters like ä ö ü after saving a map in dropbox

    german "umlaute" (ä ö ü etc.) are replaced by different signs every time you save a map to dropbox. I don't know if the same happens when saving to google drive or other places. Would be nice to have that fixed.

  19. Table Node

    One feature I see in lots of other mind maps is a small table in the node, thus giving the user the ability to list longer lists of related information without having to create many extra nodes.
