Inserting Sticky Notes, Groups and Images to your Brainstorm


Once you’ve opened a new Brainstorm canvas you can begin to embellish it with sticky notes, groups and images, to express your ideas clearly. Sticky notes allow you to add quick sound-bites of information that you can then arrange into different categories as your ideas develop and grow.

  1. Enter Brainstorm view
  2. On the main toolbar click on the yellow “Idea” icon to add a sticky note to the canvas
  3. Alternatively you can add sticky notes by clicking anywhere on the canvas and typing.
  4. Start typing to add text to the note and press enter when you’re finished
  5. You edit the text at any time by double clicking the sticky note
