Some of the changes:
- Reassigning nodes - Noted in the help article, you can now reassign a child/parent node by simply clicking and dragging it - however, as noted by
@German Manvelov, this is perhaps not as polished as it could be and appears to create some challenges, especially if you you are simply try to move the node and not reassign in. Here I am just clicking and dragging a node - watch as it reassigns itself as I just attempt to move it over to the right:
- Creating a new Mind Map from a node - In this post by
@Diy, I believe there was previously a bug where you could duplicate a mind map node using copy/cut-and-paste, Ctrl+D, or Alt+drag. Once you did, it retained its status of a sub-node which looked kind of funny on its own. However, it could still be reattached to a mind map was orphaned. Now when you extract a sub-node from a mind map, it is converted to a new mind map as a central/root node. This is also true if you just had two mind maps that were created net new - you could attach one to the other as a sub-node. In this example, I am doing an Alt+drag on a sub-node:
Other things I noted:
- When attaching a central node as a sub-node on another mind map, if you keep your mouse button held down, you can ‘cancel’ the attaching by moving away again. However, once you let go of your mouse button, you would have to cut-and-paste that node to make a new mind map from it. Here’s what happens if you hold the mouse button down:
- This may just be my paying more attention now, but connection lines don’t seem to be as fluid when the sub-nodes are close together - example at 200% zoom:
