"Print map with room to add written notes, branches and topics."

"Add ability to size map on printed page, so I can take the printed map, and use it as a template while taking written notes, by adding new branches and topics. Back at the computer, I can add my notes to the original map.
The current MindManager behavior is to fit the map to the page, leaving not much room for additional notes.
This would be useful for taking an agenda to a meeting, or for carrying my thoughts with me to add to them while away from the computer. I could add to my brainstorming map at night by turning on the light and adding my best 4 AM ideas.

Use the file > Print > Page Set Up menu and increase the left and right margins.  I often set mine to 50mm.

Alternatively add floating topics or images e.g. a plus sign at diagonally opposite corners and use their position to create "padding" around the main map.  After adding the floating topics press Ctrl-F5 to "see" the padding.
