Formatting Branch Text and Floating Text

In iMindMap 11 you can customise your mind maps further by formatting the text on the branches. If you want to add text to the canvas, but not to a branch you can add a floating text box that can be moved around the canvas. Exclusively for iMindMap 11, you can now re-position the text in your central idea so that it does not obscure the central image.

To edit the text on a Branch

 

Double click on the Branch you wish to edit.
