Moving Image

How do I start or get the image in the top left hand corner? I am on MM 2012.
I am using the image for an organisational chart and inserting in a webpart and when I drag the image up all I am doing is changing the view. I need the image at the top as when I put it in the webpart (for sharepoint 2007) you have to scroll and long way down to see it. Many thanks

Hello Joanne

Are you referring to the position of an image in the map background (in a floating topic), or the position of an image within a topic (relative to the topic text)?

What I am referring to is where the floating topic sits on the page. At the moment you have to scroll down approximately 40cm to see the first image (Hope this makes sense) not 100% sure what everything is called as I am self taught in mm. Thanks

You should be able to click on a floating topic and drag it to a new position. To avoid it becoming attached to other topics, hold down the Shift key while dragging it.

Hi Nick. Thanks for that but when I do this it just drags the view around and I cannot get the topic at the top of the page. It does not appear to be a floating topic. When I create a new document it automatically puts a central topic in and it is this one that I cannot move up (also can't seem to delete it). If I put a floating topic in I can move it but I am still stuck with the Central Topic which will not let me delete it.

You are right, the central topic cannot be deleted. Can you post a screen shot to help explain what you need to do?

Sorry forgot to add comment. As you can see by the image the topic is a long way down from the top and when I move it it just changes the view, not where the image sits on the page, so that when i insert the image into a webpart in Sharepoint 2007 you have to scroll a long way down to see the image .
Thanks

Hello Joanne

Thanks for the screen shot.

The "STDC" topic is not the central topic, because the +/- button to show/hide subtopics is in view. Is the central topic somewhere else? Is this topic connected to it, or is it a floating topic?

Or have you perhaps opened a "map part" instead of map? Map parts look confusingly like maps, but don't have a central topic.

I have attached another copy of a map and I think this one is the central topic. but it still does not allow me to move it to the top of the page. all it does is change the view. I am not sure what you mean about "map part" as all I do is open Mindject Mindmanager and select "new". I have attached another image. Hopefull this makes sense.

Hello Joanne

Yes, this one is the central topic. As you say, the central topic cannot be moved on the canvas, as it is always at the nominal centre.

You can make the image more compact by selecting the central topic then pressing Ctrl+Alt+Space, which will automatically position the subtopics. Then right-click on the central topic and select "Format Topic". Go to the "Subtopics layout" tab and reduce the "Distance between siblings" value, then click OK. This will make the image more compact.

What layout do you have set for the subtopics of the central topic? In the same dialogue as above, you should be able to see the selected layout. If you have manually arranged the topics to be below the central topic, then I would suggest changing it to "Tree" to automatically use the vertical tree layout.

How are you sending this image to a web part? It sounds as if this iis the step that is introducing white space above the central topic.
