The current choice of colours is what is stopping me from using MindMup. Even the old 216 web safe colour picker would be a big improvement. Using custom CSS styling is time consuming and for techies, not the average user.
Can you implement something like the google colour picker with an option to choose custom colours.15 votes
Ability to create a linked Google Doc, eg. an indented bullet lists and or styled titles. Changing the map change the doc and vice versa.
The use case is : mapping the content of an article within MindMup and quickly jump to text editing without export / file management headache.44 votes
How about a "free" layout where nodes can be placed anywhere on the screen?306 votes
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 :)230 votes
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
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 like to be able to edit a mindmap and read all of the "directory paths" from a google sheet. For example:
The use case here is that I would like to be able to use this list in autocomplete validation, so a row in a spreadsheet could refer to a particular position in a taxonomy that is easily editable as a mindmap.38 votes

you can now change the text size in individual nodes easily. here’s how: https://youtu.be/AtIYtsAvSeE
Right now the line you draw linking nodes it´s straight and crosses over nodes, should be better a curve lines like the ones that conects dependent nodes13 votes
It seems we can only search the nodes but not the text attachments. It is difficult for us to use mindmup as a note taking or collecting tools because we cannot easily search those note recorded in the attachment before. Can you help?34 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
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
It'd be great if we can move the first level of nodes left or right using Ctrl + → or Ctrl + ←.
Keyboard shortcuts already exist to move a node up or down (Ctrl + ↑ or Ctrl + ↓).24 votes
It'll be great to have shortcuts for user colors - i.e.:
Ctrl+1 - red
Ctrl+2 - green
It will be very useful to quickly change node status - for example, if you managing current tasks and switching priorities and statuses of tasks.15 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
There are times when I visualize things as a hierarchical list and there are other times I'd visualize the tree graphically.129 votes
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?
Some way of adding some basic math into our nodes168 votes
Allow a node to be a true task and ideally integrate it with Google Tasks. If not that, create a list of tasks assigned to you as user with due dates and a listing by Map/Project and then a listing with all tasks.146 votes
Would be great to be able to place graphic outline elements into the map. For example draw an outline around a group of nodes to create a different kind of more loose connection/grouping. Nice if such shapes could be colored too and placed behind the map.151 votes
