What are the main visualization features found in mind maps?


These are:

  • Visual branch structure;
  • Adding different icons;
  • Inserting images;
  • Drawing own icons.

Yes, IOctopus now has all three of these features.

You can load images from your computer into the mind maps for idea visualization. At the branches they will be displayed small but nice. When you click, they will expand to the full screen with a lightbox. 

How to add a picture?

The easiest way to add an image is to simply drag it to the branch or the center.

But there is a second option - using the icons menu.

To replace with another - just load or drag another image. 

Delete - right click on the picture.
