Many people instinctively jot ideas down on paper by clustering associated thoughts together.
MindManager provides an on screen tool to achieve the same graphical idea capture with the added benefits of editability by drag and drop of branches, enhancement through colour and images plus the ability to collaborate.
To avoid disruption to the flow of ideas operation is transparent with all map creation operations suitably intuitive.
The usual range of help topics is effectively enhanced with useful maps that simultaneously describe functionality and illustrate how effective they can be.
An extensive range of controls, icons or codes in MindManager speak and images are available to aid idea association.
Branches can be hyperlinked to a Web page, document, program, or bookmarked branches in any map.
A small map overview pane shows the extent of the map and allows the area of the main graphics view to be dynamically panned around.
The 2002 product is available in a number of versions.
Standard offers all the basic standalone functionality with a basic set of codes and images and HTML output.
The business version adds input and output compatibility with Word and PowerPoint outline format although some minor incompatibilities with Office 97 and earlier exist.
