Hi all,

I'm looking for a nice way to have our company logo and information be in cluded ing the map, and so reflect our 'house style'. We want to share some information with external people, clients, sub contracters,.... And I want users to have a 'template' to start form, so everyone is working with same colors, fonts, company information and logo,....

In MS Word and Excel I would typically do this in header (logo) and footer (other information.

In MindManger I have experimented with the background image, which works, but I'm unable to place the background image in for exmaple the top left corner.

I also experimented with a flooting topic and it would work, but I'm unable to remove the text from the topic...(I just want to show the logo)

What is the best accomplish this?

You can add a floating topic with just an image.

Right click the background and Insert Floating Image.

Dragging an image file from File Explorer does the same.

For the background image alternative try taking your logo adding it to an empty image or standard background colour image in the top left corner. Save this new image and use for the background. You may have to set the background color to the colour used in the base image as well.

Also adding floating topics on the diagonal "corners" can be used to "frame" the map. Setting a maximum size for your normal paper size e.g. A4 beyond which the map is unreadable when printed because MindManager compresses the map to fit the paper size.

Thx Andrew... just experimented again with the flooting topic. The problem her is that the 'floating' topic is indeed seen "as part of the map" and the scaling is adjusted. Whitch makes it impossible to have the center of the map beying in the center of the page.

If I understand you correctlly the solution to this is adding anohter (maybe empty) floating topic in the diagonal corner?

Hi Bart

Yes and you can make that floating topic invisible! Use no shape and make any coloured parts the same colour as the background.

You can find the invisible part by using Select All, the Rubber Band Selector or use a unique piece of invisible text e.g. "RHBC" which you search for.
