I'd like to know if is there any way of create maps with mind map concepts of line colors and width, that is after create the main topic, all subtopics will have different colors from each sibling. And each subtopic of each sibling should follow the same color as their parents. Is that possible?

Re: Line width and Line color
Try right clicking on the topic you wish to change and then select Format Topic. Here you will be able to change the colors and sizes and topic shapes. I hope this helps. Thank you!

Re: Line width and Line color
Yes, it helps... But one more thing. I'd like to increase the line width from subtopics. I'm just being able to change the line widht from the central topic to it first subtopics. After the lines are always the same size. Is it possible to change that as well?
thanks

Changing the size of the line for subtopics is currently not a feature. Please feel free to post this suggestion to our User Voice forum: http://mindjet.uservoice.com/forums/1.... Our product team would love to hear your thoughts.

I would like to increase the line thickness on branches as well - on my state of the art modern business priinter they come out so thin they "disappear". This makes printouts and sharing with others of very limited use - unless you have MM installed.

Hi Nick. The ability to change the thickness of the lines on the branches is not currently possible. Please feel free to submit this as an idea. Thank you!

I am also looking forward to an update where the lines will be thicker. When I print them, I see hardly or no lines at all. Its useless to give it to other people unless I have to draw all the lines by hand.

If you are using MindManager for Windows, there is a checkbox in the Print dialog called "High-contrast topic lines" that should make the lines much more visible on paper.

And no, the Dutch isn't a problem at all =)
