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. copy image of selected nodes to clipboard

    Tools like omnigraffle, and powerpoint support the feature of copying the current selection to a clip-board as image, after which it is possible to paste it to another software e.g. blog, word, powerpoint etc.

    As a project manager in order to create documentation faster I need to copy paste images from my mindmups.

    I know there is a workaround (export the map as a file, select a file name, after which insert image using menu and browsing it from the file system), but this is just too many steps.

  2. A hotkey and a toolbar shortcut to make open "all the nodes" at one go

    This kind of thing will help when the map is big and you want to save mindmup in image(PNG) format

  3. Export a readable image of a small map

    I have a small map, let's say 4 nodes. I want to export it to PNG and use it a presentation. However, exporting ignores zoom level. So I get a small image, which is useless for presentation. The workaround is to capture screen and crop the image in a browser, but this leaves one node with a selection and the background is not transparent.

  4. Create Systems mapping tool

    A big challenge in design is the impact of unintended consequences. Systems mapping with causal feedback loops help you see the impacts of a system in one space. Your tool is very close to this- if you add causal system loops and a few other systems thinking/mapping tools, you would have the best software in the world for this.

  5. Crosscutting Feature with Nodeannotation or Tagging

    Hey,

    there are things which span on a different level across.

    As an example: Think about a Mindmap with Services. Like Web, Database, Email etc. and every one of those 'nodes' need information about how to backup its data.

    What you would do without crosscutting: You would make an backup node on every one of those nodes.

    With an annotation or an Tag, you can add a Backupannotation (with content).

    The benefit is quite simple: you can have an list view where you see all annotations and all nodes annotated with it. It will generate an 'Backupinformationlist' automaticly.

    Perhaps an…

  6. Expand file submenu to match recent filename size

    If the initial node has text too long when clicking on File the "X" is not on the same line as the text.

  7. Support OPML import and export

    This feature request (from someone else) was closed before, but resubmitting as requested. This would make MindMup an attractive alternative to MindNode.

  8. Export links to Freemind.

    Currently node links export to Freemind as text. (Also, the HTML tags are not closed.) Please fix!

  10. Insert Tab

    I would appreciate an insert tab where I can add features to my map that I can not access in Mindmup, but can elsewhere. I would especially appreciate being able to insert a graph or table from a spreadsheet.

    Example of an Insert Tab

    Insert Tab
    -From Google Drive
    **
    -Task (for a to-do list)
    -Image
    -From file
    -Google Image search

    **
    -Take you to your Google Drive; select document; select portion of doc. to insert into Mindmup)
    -Allow changes made to portion of selected document to change across both Drive and Mindmup

  11. Smoother transitions while editing multiple existing attachments.

    To edit multiple attachments, the smoothest process seems to be:

    1) Select node
    2) Press A
    3) Click edit button (don't take hand off mouse for ctrl+enter)
    4) Use mouse to place cursor
    5) Move mouse hand to keyboard to work
    6) ctrl+enter to save (usually multiple times because the esc key is a "delete everything instantly forever" button at this point)
    7) hit esc and begin the process again

    I think a better process would go something like this:

    1) Click paperclip on node: attachment opens, already in edit mode, cursor position saved from last time
    2) Move mouse…

  12. Allow similar version control integration to bitbucket accounts

    WHY: bitbucket is a great alternative (especially for some side projects with free private repos!) to github.

  13. Connection measurement (strength, length, value)

    If switched on, the user will be able to give each connection a value, and depending on that value, the connection line will be longer or shorter. This will enable contextual connections: for example, if the mindmap captures project dependencies, those lines will be used to show the length of time that the child of a node will take to be completed.

  14. Alternative key bindings

    I'd like to be able to define my own key bindings.
    I want to use vi-like hjkl to move around but this would also enable freemind/freeplane key bindings

  16. Add a '?' hotkey that brings up a help popup, similar to GMail

    In GMail one gets a great popup w/ all of the hotkeys by pressing '?'. It's a great way to lookup a hotkey without taking your hands from the keyboard

  18. Integrate ge.tt so that one can upload and link to files in the comments of a Knot

    Adding files (word files, excel, etc.) to branches is very useful. It would be great to be able to do so in the comments part. One can currently go to e.g. ge.tt upload the file and then paste the url. Doing this faster through direct integration with ge.tt would be huge. :-)

  19. Support Drag and Drop of Links onto Nodes, so I can add a link to a node by just dragging from another web page or from the address bar.

    I often want to link a node to a web page and this would be a quick and easy way to do that (I know there are other ways already i.e. "attachements"). Not sure if current browsers support this type of operation, but if they do I would like this feature.

  20. Task management issues: notes, integration with GMail Tasks.

    I am a fan of the notes and alerts features, using them for task management.
    1) At this time exporting a Mindmup file to FreeMind results in lost notes. Please fix this.
    2) FreePlane is the "new" FreeMind, with additional features in Time and Tasks management. Tighter integration of Mindmup with FreePlane would be very beneficial.
    3) It would be great if Gmail tasks can be integrated with Mindmup to create an excellent visual task management environment. Thanks!
