I would like to shorten the length of the line from a topic going to its subtopics. I have figured out how to make other line changes, but I can't find out how to change line length. Thanks for any help.

In MindManager 2016 ( the latest version) It works this way.

  1. Go to Design tab
  2. Select Topic shape (small triangle)
  3. Select format topic (at the bottom)
  4. Choose tab subtopic layout
  5. Adjust spacing to your needs.
  6. Ofcourse you have to select a topic to apply this to that topic.

I assume this was already there in MM vs 11, since it felt quite natural going this route.

Note it only works from maintopics down.
Succes

Thanks for your reply. We've already tried this, and it didn't change line length (vertically), just the spacing between items horizontally. We want to change the length of the actual line itself.

Well, Matthieu........ I don't think that she means that, since it can be done with the suggestions I already gave, and she needs something else.
