"Add a ""Left Map"" subtopic layout option"

"Under the central topic format topic, subtopic layout option, there are 7 subtopic layouts (map, org chart, tree, right map, etc). A ""Left Map"" in the open eighth option box would provide a good way of displaying a flow toward a conclusion or outcome.

The only way to do that now is to pin a main topic on the left side of the central topic and build from there."

Richard,

OPTi-Add-ins, http://www.olympic-limited.co.uk/product/opti-add-ins/, has a left hand map template that you can use to get Topics aligned to the left.

Also, if you select the Central Topic of this map and Copy and Paste it as a Floating Topic you will also get left handed Topic generation on that as well.

Update:

MAP for MindManager, our replacement for OPTi-Add-ins now includes the ability to make Map Topics go left in the Map rather than through opening a template Map.

This means it is now possible to switch the Topic layout to left and then back to another layout without losing the ability to then reposition the Topics again.

You can also create Tree maps with the Topics on the left hand side of the Map as well.

Where? Its in the MAP!
