How to resize the width of several topics together (multiple selection and resize)?

  • Updated 4 years ago

I'd appreciate help. As showed in this screen-recording (, I have hundreds of topics which were created by Mindmanager 2017 having a very narrow width. Then I need to enlarge the width of all topics, but I could do it just topic by topic, what does not make sense.

Is there any MindManager functionality that allow selecting multiple topics and change their width together?

Any tip/workaround to handle large maps which need resizing widths of several topics at once is very welcomed!

Thanks for assistance!

The MAP add-in from Olympic Limited has a Fixed Topic Width feature which might assist you with this, provided the topics don't have any images. Scroll down this link for information on how this works:
The MAP add-in is very useful for all sorts of tasks like this.

In addition to the suggetsion to use the MAP add-in,....

You may consider using the Topic Notes for those long texts and use smaller names of the topics. Mindmap user would say: "Just One Word" if possible.

The topic notes can be searched so that is no problem.

Thanks guys for all feedback!

I'm trying to be more concise with my topic names, but I face many situations in which I do need to deal with lengthy names. 

I've started using MAP add-in to handle this need (and many others - great addin indeed), but I should say I'm quite disappointed that MindManager can't resize natively several topics widths at once. I do consider it a basic missing feature for an overall robust software as MindManager.

As a champion reference for future MindManager development, I recorded my screen showing how Freeplane masters this functionality quite well:

I imagine that a feature like that is already requested by MindManager users to be implemented. How could I know that for reinforcing the request, or even to make a new request if it is the case?
