As for Angus's issue that will definitely have to wait until I am back in the office. Personally I avoid multiple links like the plague. That way the Title text for the web page or the link on a page when you drag it to the map is automatically the topic text.
This isn't possible in MindManager, but there are two workarounds. First as Andrew says you can create a relationship line between two topics and add a callout. I described in an answer a while back how to add one of these relationship lines with callouts and then hide the original branch line: https://community.mindjet.com/mindjet... - you can go one step further and remove the line and fill colours from the callout so that the text floats above the relationship line.
The second option is to insert a specially-formatted subtopic between the parent topic and the linked subtopic. This subtopic is formatted to remove the fill colour but retain a line under the text. This line can be formatted to look like the link line so that the intermediate topic text looks like it is sitting on the connecting line. Of course this approach works only with some map themes and growth options.
I was wondering if I had missed the feature in Mindjet.
Using an subtopic is an work around. However, I encourage Mindjet to program the feature right into the branch lines. It would make things a lot easier when moving or changing branches and provide consistency with other products in the field.
Hopefully, the next update will address this issue.
I doubt it.
Mindjet never replicated pure mind mapping (write text, add line underneath). It's a different model which has its roots in mind mapping. I think mind mapping disappeared as a term from the Mindjet site for awhile. A site search today shows it is back as a term. In the range of computer based visualisations that call themselves mind maps this is not unreasonable.
Andrew, I checked out how iMindMap does this. It would appear that for the purposes of export the line text is treated as a main topic or the highest level sub-topic, depending on where it is in the hierarchy.
This leads me to a far simpler solution for Mindjet to consider. As I described earlier, it is relatively easy to make a main or subtopic appear as branch line text by formatting it to show the line only and remove the fill colour. The only limitation from this standing in more universally as branch line text is that that the topic will display in a straight horizontal line only, which is not good for those that want a more organic appearance.
All that needs to be done therefore is to provide some ability to curve the line of a topic or subtopic formatted in this way. There would then be no need for Mindjet to do anything special in terms of exporting these topics to Word, as their status as main or subtopics would be unaltered.
