nodes around parent node, instead of just on one side
It's annoying all the children nodes are on one side of the parent nodes. Ideally nodes are around the parent node for better visualisation when revising.
I think this discussion is very similar to the layout request (search for "free layout") to find. Add votes for the two together and it is the top requested thing. I just find MindMup and what is frustrating me the most is the inability to arrange the nodes as I like to make the map more vertical vs. horizontal. and in some cases more radial.

You can use Cmd-Left and Cmd-Right to arrange nodes on either side of the root node, and Cmd-Up and Cmd-Down to reorder them. I find this helps me structure my thinking, and means I can re-balance the map as different subtrees get larger.
Yes, but please include 3 choices - my top choice is listed first:
- Vertical tree layout (root node at top - other nodes extend downward) !
- Nodes around parent (most of all this is required for root node)
- Tree layout (like now - tree extending left or right)

I agree it should be a choice as we prefer it the way it works now with this feature only on the Root node
What do you mean, Bill? Root node? Currently, only the root node has this feature.
Only the root node can do this. This property should definitely be extended to all nodes.
It should be a second type of mindmap you can choose. The more vertical layout helps for some things but is very annoying for others

Also my top request, this would be really helpful.
Hi Helen, I use Google Chrome on both a windows computer and a Chromebook - and all child nodes DO surround the parent node.
