I'm using v16.  The horizontal swim lane template has 4 roles.  I need to add a few more...  I've had no success the far.

Thank you Shilpa!!! 

A follow up question...  I have select the swim lane lines, and would like to format the object so they are evenly distributed.  Most of the Format Object selections are grayed out.


Thanks again,


Dave

Shilpa,
Please could you pass on to development an enhancement request to make this simpler with e.g. add a further swimlane that uses the currently selected as size. I've tried several times to do this and I still can't get it to work as expected (I always seem to end up with an additional arrow down) and yes, the copy/paste, you suggested just creates an almightly mess. 

And yes a format object is needed too.

I suggest the a large "+ " arrow on the bottom of the 'tablet' icon (regardless of left or right) would be suggestion where most users would expect such functionality.

Pretty please!

This is probably off topic but thought I would start hear since it was the most relevant posts - trying not to create simple single threaded threads.  Where would I find the swimlane template for MM on the Mac? Version 10.6.113

I'm afraid that swimlanes require the Flowchart layout which is not yet available in MindManager for Mac
