Keeping Floating Topics Free

Filed Under Mindjet


July 21, 2005

A user just asked me how to keep floating topics from becoming attached to the main map as you move them around — and especially closer to — the map. If you use ALT + Shift as you move the floating topic, it will not connect to the map (as it otherwise will do if you move it near the map).

    Thanks for this tip – it gives me more flexibilty. I just discovered your blog via and Hobie’s Comdex report – excellent. I love my Mindjet prog and use it for everything from shopping lists to organising conferences.

    Hi Roger,

    I’m glad you brought this up…

    In MindManager, go to the Learning tab located along the task pane (very bottom tab). In this tab, you will find X5 release notes, keyboard shortcuts, a map titled “Tips and Tricks”, and a guide for using Smart Map Parts.

    Happy Mapping and thanks for using MindManager!!

    Dear Hobie:
    Thank you for sharing this!

    This has long frustrated me.

    How many other “tips” do you have hidden away? How about a Tip Booklet?

    Colin, Trevor–
    Thanks. I stand corrected. Someone showed it to me once with both keys. Works fine with just Shift. This puts a new spin on Customer Service (in which the customer provides the service! :>)
    Thanks again, guys.
