MindMeister 3 Feature Parade
As promised here is the more verbose version of the most recent update of MindMeister. Release 3 contains lots of enhancements to the ease of use and overall consistency of MindMeister, plus some bigger feature blocks. Two important things we just didn’t get done in time though – inline images and connections between ideas. They’re in the making though, expect them before Christmas!
Find some key new features below, or see a comprehensive list in the What’s New in MindMeister 3.0 mind map.
- Task Management
Many more features for easier task management in MindMeister, including start date and duration, email notifications, iCalendar feeds, WunderTasks and a task overview from all maps.
- Search and filter, better tags
The new map search – you’ll find it in your map list view – makes managing many maps a lot easier. You can search for titles and contents, and even use Find in maps (CTRL-F). Also, managing tags was enhanced with a new overflow dropdown.
- Resize ideas and wrap
Overlong idea labels always created problems. In the new release you can now resize them via drag and drop, and your maps will also keep the wrappings when exported e.g. to PDF or as image.
- History View
We completely revamped the version history to make viewing and replaying the collaborative changes of a mind map a useful and fun experience. Clicking on the coloured bullets starts “replay” mode. See also our tutorial video.
You can now turn any public map into a WikiMap. This will make it editable for everybody (well, everybody who has a MindMeister account, to avoid spamming). Quite useful to gather input from many people at once!
- Import text files
In addition to Freemind and MindManagerTM formats, you can now also import plain text files into MindMeister.
- Emailing attachments
Geisesblitz Email now supports attachments which will be inserted as attachments to your ideas into MindMeister.
- Many more key shortcuts
Our users say they love them, so we’ve added quite a few more for common operations. See a complete list.
- Other enhancements
New user interface, revamped “My Account” section, Offline mode for Safari, recommendations in map view, new export dialog and options, better printing (via PDF), clone public maps, larger note previews and much more.
Well, we hope you benefit from all the work that is put into MindMeister. We strive to make the best online mind mapping experience available and welcome all your feedback on the new stuff.
