Have You Been Using Speed Mind Mapping?
iMindMap has always had built-in Speed Mind Mapping tools so you can create Mind Maps using just your keyboard but many users don’t even realise it is there! Bin your mouse and move over to an even quicker, faster and easier way of capturing your ideas.
Speed Mind Mapping works in conjunction with the timesaving SmartLayout feature so that you can record your ideas whilst the clever SmartLayout neatly lays out your branches for you – avoiding collisions or overlapping. Impressive huh?

Check Out iMindMap 5.4.1’s New Speed Mind Mapping Buttons
iMindMap 5.4.1’s brand new Speed Mind Mapping buttons are the latest newcomer to iMindMap 5, designed to make the process of Mind Mapping even easier than ever before. If you tend to prefer using your mouse over your keyboard, these intuitive buttons located on the toolbar now you give you the chance to Speed Mind Map too! No need to manually create and drag your branch out anymore, just click on your desired branch button and iMindMap will do the hard part for you. For those important or more elaborate points that call for a box branch, you can also create child and sibling box branches too.
We believe in choice and by giving you the freedom to Mind Map the way YOU want you can now create maps using your tool of preference.
These handy tools can be found on the Home tab on Windows or on the main menu under the Formatting bar on Mac.
BRAND NEW – Move Branches
And when it comes to refining our maps, we know that no matter how quickly we make our Mind Maps, we often spend the same amount of time ‘tweaking’ the final product as we do creating it! Speed Mind Mapping makes the ‘editing’ process even easier with the new ‘Move Up’ and ‘Move Down’ buttons. Forget dragging the branches around the page, simply select your desired branch and use the Speed Mind Mapping ‘Move’ keys to reorder your branches exactly how you want them.
If you are an iMindMap 5 user make sure you update your software now to the latest 5.4.1 update so you can try out this brand new functionality for yourself. Another FREE update for our valued users!
