Hi All,



I am just evaluating Miro. 

I like to keep my mind maps simple either by:


  1. Collapsing nodes
  2. Hiding all nodes other than node with focus ie F6 in XMind
  3. Creating a submap with a backlink


How this be achieved in Miro?


Thanks in advanced,

I was migrating from Mindmeister to Miro and was very disappointed to find out that MindMap nodes in Miro can’t collapse :disappointed:. This makes navigation more difficult and confusing for big maps. Hope they add this functionality soon.

Exactly - makes Mindmeister super compelling to keep - its a great tool and we love it.

Hi Miro

I really admire your tools and I have introduced working with Miro to many agencies. Being able to collapse certain parts of a Mindmap is an essential feature und its well overdue to implement it.

Honestly I could not believe that this was not implemented given the basic nature of the request and the number of requests.

Thank you for implementing soon.


Reading this thread, I think it’s time to move the outside Miro community and use Twitter -
