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. convert file:// urls (local filesystem) to hyperlink

    the fast hyperlink on the node is very convenient, what about converting also the urls starting with file:// and allow the user quickly accessing their local filesystem in the browser?

  2. Compatibility with Grammarly

    I love the new notes functionality in Mindmup 2.0! Recently I've been using the Grammarly Chrome plugin for checking my spelling and grammar, unfortunately it doesn't seem to work with notes in MindMup, it will recommend changes but by clicking into Grammarly it deactivates the notes window so any changes through Grammarly are instantly lost. This isn't a major bugbear, but it does make writing long text sections less convenient.

    Many thanks

    Tom

  5. focus on a node and show only the associated branch

    while focused on a node, show only:
    > upstream nodes leading to the selected node.
    > the subtree below the node.

  6. add stock icons

    add stock icons similar to what XMIND has. it's pretty useful to have icons such as 1,2,3,4 to identify priorities. Smileys and flags are also useful indicators. The workaround now is to upload the images as the icons.

  7. Freer movement of parents and chidlren

    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 altering

  8. 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…

  9. Having the possibility to Copy and Paste detached images instead of browsing

    The current problem is that we have to browse images from our folders and attach the images to nodes. I would like to be able to Copy and Paste images from Google onto a random place on the mind map. This will be more easier because we wouldn't have to adjust the size of the image and we will e able to freely move them around the mind map.

  10. Smart Layout

    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.

  11. Ability to place Text Box on the Map

    Have the ability to place text box's anywhere on the map. For example, I color code nodes and would be nice to be able to place a legend on the map for others to understand what the colors mean.

  13. Auto-fit and formatting

    It would be great if you had a function that allowed the mind map to auto format so that all nodes would auto-arrange to fit the screen/map. Currently when nodes are created you need to manually sort them around the centre point. This can take time and never looks accurate. Also would be helpful to be able to change the size of the nodes or the font size in them.

  14. Custom color palettes

    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.

  15. Grouping

    Ability to group a sub tree or selected nodes and the ability to connect this group to a different part of the tree. The connect only allows me to connect one unrelated node to another, putting in multiple connectors makes the map unreadable

  16. link to another mind map

    It would be really nice if we could link a node in mind map to another mind map with a relative path . eg if we have many mind maps in a folder ..
    > Transport
    > Air
    >plane
    >Land
    >Car=>Link to=> "car.mup"
    >Bus
    >Van
    >Water
    >Ship
    >Boat

    Eg in above example if we could click on car and go a mindmap called car.mup somewhere in the folder . it would be a clean ,navigable and much more maintainable map. esp we are have huge maps.

    Note : map files could be accessed using relative paths eg : ~/folder/folder/car.mup

  20. Ability to format text inside bubbles like make it bold(at least)

    It would be great if we could format the bubble text like we can use bold,italic,underline,highliigher,different fonts and text color so that while revising the maps we can easily find what we are looking for.
