Updates to MindMeister 6

First, a huge “Thank You!” to all of you who've tweeted and left great feedback for us on Facebook regarding the recent launch of MindMeister 6! This newest version is the result of countless hours of user interaction studies, surveys, and overall user experience observation. However, in slimming down your favorite mind mapping interface, it would appear that we'd taken away just a tad too much.

Here's a quick recap of what you've requested be returned to MindMeister:

Configurable scrollbars

By default, scrollbars in the map editor are turned off. To enable them, click the Info icon in the footer and toggle the "Scrollbars" checkbox.

Background and border color

To easily change the background color of individual ideas, click the Color icon in the Format widget of the sidebar. Within this drop down you'll find tabs to color text, node background, and node border.

My Tasks List

It took us a few days to get this functionality back up and running, but you'll now find your open tasks conveniently back in the map list, within the new sidebar.

What fans are saying

"It's great to see a developer listening to its customers and responding with terrific new features and functionality. MindMeister continues to get my recommendation as the top web-based mind mapping application available today."
