iMindMap 6.2 out now

March 27th, 2013

How to update

For current iMindMap 6 users, a pop-up will appear in the iMindMap desktop software, letting you know that this update is available. You can also click on Tools and then Updates, and follow the simple on-screen instructions to receive the 6.2 update (or Help and then Updates on a Mac).

New Features

NEW Social Sharing

With iMindMap 6.2′s new social sharing feature, you are able to share your Mind Maps as images on Twitter and Facebook at the touch of a button. It couldn’t be simpler – take a look at the video below to see it in action.

NEW Online Viewer

For those of you who have been begging us for a way of sharing an interactive Mind Map with anyone, the answer is here! You will be able to share a unique link to your map using the new iMindMap Viewer.

Users will be able to pan around, zoom, use the integrated search option, expand and collapse branches, view notes and click links – all within the Viewer. There is even a feature for the map’s creator to embed a map in a website. You can find out all about the Viewer and how to embed a map by watching the Public Sharing and Embedding Tutorial Videos.

NEW Presentation Mode Audio Notes*

Audio notes are great fun, but nothing new to the experienced iMindMapper. However, now that they work in conjunction with presentation mode it is a whole new ball-game. You can play an iMindMap presentation with your audio fully synchronised. Just sit back, relax and let that big work presentation take care of itself. You can even export the whole thing as a video! Take a look at how to perfect the audio in your presentations below…

NEW Marquee Mover*
When you are creating your ‘slides’ and trying to get the perfect look for your presentation, you can use this new feature to have even better control of what the audience will see. Working seamlessly with the slide customisation tool, you can make each slide, bigger, smaller, rotate it and now position it anywhere you want.

NEW Box Branch and Flowchart Shapes* and Colours

You can now choose from 16 different shapes for your box branches and fill them in with any colour of your choice. iMindMap 6.2 will also have a further 11 assorted shapes and colours for your flowcharts, so you can make them as bespoke as you wish and ensure that they really stand out.

Completely new for 6.2 is the ability to add a shape and colour to Floating Text – all 16 of the box branch shapes are available for this.

NEW 3D Images* and Central Ideas

What kind of iMindMap update would this be without a barrel-full of new images and central ideas? Our Development and Creative Media teams have ensured that you now have even more choice when Mind Mapping in two or three-dimensions.

We hope you’re going to love to new features – don’t forget to let us know what you think!

If you don’t have iMindMap 6 yet then you can buy it, along with all the fantastic 6.2 features, from our website here.

*Selected features only available in iMindMap 6 Ultimate.

  1. Really great features.
    Unfortunately the sharing with the Online Viewer doesn’t work for me :-(

      Hi Chris,

      Yes iMindMap is available in German – if you download it from the website it should automatically be in German. If not, you can change it by going to File > iMindMap Options > International

      Hallo Chris,

      Ja iMindMap ist in Deutsch – wenn Sie es herunterladen von der Website sollte es automatisch in deutscher Sprache. Wenn nicht, können Sie es, indem Sie auf> iMindMap Optionen> International Datei ändern

    Does anyone know if the mindmap can generate a GANNT chart for project management?

  4. Can we convert the results of the presentation mode including custom grouping to Ppt and keynote and even more important to present from an iPad ?

      Hi Hazel,

      You can’t export presentations made in the presentation builder as a powerpoint file as the file would export based on branch ordering rather than the layout you created in the presentation builder.

      If you create your presentation on desktop, sync your map to the iMindMap cloud and then access your map on your iPad, you will be able to access the exact presentation you made on desktop.

      Thanks, Natalie
