Big mindmaps and auto layout

Hi. I have a lot of problems with a big mind map – about 250 presentation frames and more than 1000 different objects. It’s so hard to change/add something and not to break other frames.

Each, even relatively small movement of object will also change position of other objects – and in most of the cases also move it away from their frames.

I tried to lock those objects, but it did not help. Even blocked object will be moved.

BTW. The locking mechanism doesn’t work when I select more than one object.

I also tried just reduce the closeness of my objects – it helped but not fully.

Is it possible to somehow solve my problems?
How do you work with such maps?

Hi @Tomek,

Interesting case! I think that we need to have a look at the board and check what is going wrong there. I’ll go ahead and convert your post into a support ticket. The Support Team will get back to you via email.

Hi.  I have a slightly different issue with autolayout in large mindmaps. Using “align child nodes” does a decent job, except that it leaves a lot of empty space between items.  This means that when I zoom in enough to be able to read the text, I can only fit a small chunk of the mindmap on the screen.  It would be nice to be able to either adjust the text spacing, or at least have an option for a ‘compact mode’.

Any news about this ticket? I am having the same issue, frames don’t follow mind map topics if they are realigned. 

Miro could either fix this (maybe faster) or add a boundary functionality to mind maps..

thanks

Mind Map autolayout is ANNOYING!  Please-o-Please allow us to SWITCH IT OFF.  Thank you. 

 

Massive white spaces, cannot compact - FRUSTRATING.
