Connections between branches (prototype)


We're making connections between the branches now.

There's still a lot of work to do. But there's already a lot to see.
This is the prototype of two versions of connections:

The first one is manual like the other mind map software.

And the second one is automatic. That is:

  • Curves find their own way. You don't have to move anything - just specify the start and end.
  • Also in this mode you do not need to correct anything - if something was added or maximize, curves will adjust themselves.

Let's look at a few more examples:




What do you think? Would you use such automatic curves in IOctopus mind maps?

We seem to have a great relationship. Look, there's a new button at the top that makes the connections between branches.

Unobvious in IOctopus

When it makes sense, we break the design rule: "everything should be obvious in the interface". But what would be the point of that?
