Creating a new Brainstorm

Brainstorm view is an additional tool in iMindMap, specially designed so you can capture and organise your ideas quickly.

To create a new brainstorm:


  1. Open iMindMap, go to File and click on New
  2. Under “Choose a view” click on Brainstorm, it’s the second option down.
  3. Enter a name for your Brainstom and click on “Start”.




This will open a blank canvas with a cork board background and a new “Brainstorming tab” will be on the main toolbar.



Converting a Mind Map to a Brainstorm

To convert an existing Mind Map into a Brainstorm simply click "Brainstorm" on the main toolbar under home. This will convert the main branches into groups and child branches into lists and notes.
