It would be great to have choices in how the mindmap is laid out. The vertical orientation of the current mind map makes it difficult to see the "whole map" if you are sharing it in a web meeting for insights (i.e., online retrospective). This could be accomplished by some of the other suggestions such as "emphasizing major nodes" and the current collapse/expand subtree feature.
vote for auto circular layout
My map is now huge... and all vertical. Not good!
Agreed! This tool is very good for adding and editing, but overview and presentation could be better. I came "here" from "text2mindmap", which does a uniformly circular layout -- that would be a very good option to have!
The mindmap I'm working on right now has 3 branches plus one that is a lot bigger than the others. The first ones are on the left, while that last one (placed on the right) takes up more than twice the height of the others combined. It would be great if some of those branches could be turned over to face left, or down, or up.
