Drawing Branches

The next step to creating your iMindMap is to add branches.

The main branches which flow from the Central Idea are the key themes called Parent Branches.

You can have lots of fun with creating different styles of branches to make your iMindMap more interesting

Straight Branch

To draw a straight branch, tap your Central Idea and a box will appear with an orange “+” in the centre.

Stop when you’re happy with your branch to add it to your page.

Wiggle Branch

A Wiggle Branch lets you draw your own branch in any direction to create a wiggly line.

Child Branch

You can explore each theme or Parent Branch in greater depth by adding Child Branches. You can add lots of Child Branches to one Parent Branch, or you can keep connecting branches to make a bigger iMindMap.

To add a new Child Branch, tap on a branch to select it and then tap on the white “+” at the end of that branch.

Shapes

If you want certain words or ideas to stand out, you can add different Shapes to the end of your branches.

When you've chosen the Shape you want, tap on it to add it to the branch.

If you draw a Child Branch from your shape branch, this will also have your chosen Shape on the end.
