When you create a mindmap, it automatically becomes "in your subject area"General" saved. However, if you are in a subject area when you create a mind map, it will automatically be saved in that subject area.

Create your mindmap

When you create a new mindmap, you will initially see your central node and a menu bar with many options to customize your mindmap.

By clicking on the central node and writing something, your mindmap will automatically be renamed accordingly. If you drag the "+" symbol away from the node, you can create another node. This will be connected to the central branching point by a thin thread.

In the menu bar you will find several options to edit your text; you can make it bigger, bold, italic or change the font of the main node and all connected nodes.

You can also change the color of a node. If you want, you can apply these changes only to the silhouette of a node or by using the "Enable gradient filters" option to all "children-Apply knot.

A note can only be accessed through the node it is attached to. Click on the small notepad icon in your mindmap to access the annotations.
