We’ve just successfully deployed a major update to MindMeister with lots of cool new functions! A stand out feature of this release are the topic boundaries for graphically grouping branches together. The new styles dropdown allows you to quickly assign, customize and save frequently used topic styles to make your maps stand out even more.
Boundaries enable you to graphically attract attention to a topic and its children.
There are lots of options available for customizing your boundaries. You can select from multiple shapes, border types and styles, and background colors to create visually appealing mind maps. Learn more
|Quick Topic Styles
You can now also quickly change the appearance of your topics using the new styles dropdown in the sidebar.
We’ve added three extra topic styles to each theme which can be assigned to one or more topics at the click of a button. Use them to make topics stand out, or design your own styles – for more on that, scroll down. Learn more
|Customize and Save Styles
In addition to using the predefined topic and boundary styles, you can now design and save your own custom styles. This means you can develop CI-compliant mind map designs which can easily be applied to all your maps.
This feature is available to both Business and Pro users. Learn more
|Evernote and Dropbox
Attach files to topics directly from your Evernote and Dropbox accounts. Seamlessly import your important files using the files widget in the sidebar.
This increases the options for organizing your most important documents and files in a mind map. You can easily share these files when brainstorming and collaborating on projects, in meetings, assignments etc. Learn more
|Custom Map Themes
Previously this feature was only offered to Business users, but now it’s also available in the Pro plan.
It allows you to design your own map themes in MindMeister and save them to use whenever you want. This will enable you to create an identity for your mind maps that you can use over and over. It will also encourage more creativity when developing your overall mind map and presentations. Learn more
