Inserting Icons and custom Icons on a Branch


Using visual icons can help us to quickly associate our branch ideas on our Mind Maps. Add your own custom icons to create your own visual categorisation system.

We recommend using a PNG file type so the space around the icon is transparent. When you upload an image it will automatically scale down to the size of the icon, so to avoid the image being distorted we recommend using a ratio of 35 x 35 to fit a square dimension. If the image you want to use is not a square, then ensure that the space around the image compensates for it.

To add an icon to your Mind Map:

 

Navigate to the icon section in the Properties Panel on the right- hand side of the screen. Alternatively, go to ‘Insert’ from the main toolbar and click the ‘Icon Library’ icon.

The icons that are available are categorised into arrows, calendar, communications, documents, finance, flags, numbers, people, shapes, symbols, tasks, transport and weather.

 

 

There are 2 different ways to add an icon to your branch:

 

Select the Branch that you wish to add the icon to, and select the icon you wish to add.

Or, drag and drop your chosen icon to your selected Branch.

 

Removing Icons:

 

To delete your icon, right click on the icon, go to ‘Icon’ and choose 'Remove Icon'.

To add a custom icon to your Mind Map:

 

Navigate to the icon section in the Properties Panel on the right-hand side of the screen. Alternatively, go to insert and click the Icon Library icon.

Go to ‘Manage’ at the bottom of the Properties Panel. The Manage icon library options will appear.

Add icons to existing categories by selecting a category from the drop-down menu and clicking the ‘Add icon’ option below. You are then able to import Icons from your own files into your chosen category.

 

 

Alternatively, create a new category by typing your own category name and clicking the ‘+’ sign. You are then able to import Icons from your own files into your new category by clicking on the ‘Add icon’ option below.
