Mind Mapping Needs Improvement Thread Tools Search this Thread Display Modes
Prev Previous Post   Next Post Next
Before emailing the developers I wanted to see if others were of the same opinion as me (this thread seems to suggest so): OG is quiet poor at mind mapping and by that I mean it does not facilitate the job at all. The preset templates are either childish or not very usable esthetically ( that may be a personal preference ) but the actual branching "algorithm" yields poor trees.

Here is an example of a test mindmap I just did. I tried to play with the settings to get it to distribute the branches appropriately (without having to place them with the mouse, which is the whole point of having a mindmapping program) but to no avail.
If other users or the developers could comment on this or suggest hints/address that in upcoming releases that would be excellent.
