Spacing topics in a flowchart not possible?

  • Question
  • Updated 4 weeks ago
I created a new flowchart project.
In this project i just got going clicking away and adding new topics with the mouse.
The spacing is a mess now, so i just want to space them evenly. 
How can I accomplish this? (balance map, reset position , are greyed out)
In Visio its just a matter of selecting the topics and use the function 'space evenly'.

Anybody any ideas?

I can't think of a way to do this. MindManager is at heart still a mind mapping program to which flowcharting and concept mapping features have been added. These take the form of floating topics connected by specially-formatted relationship lines, but without a central topic.

MindManager can only balance topics connected to a central topic, and even in "traditional" MM mindmaps floating topics are not affected by the Balance Map command.

Thank you for your answer.
This is a real bummer, because I really like this program. Is there a possibility for Add-ins you now of?

No, not that I can think of, though you could ask Nigel at Olympic Limited to have a look at this. His company produces the very versatile MAP add-in for MindManager.

However, I suspect that MindManager's underlying mind mapping structure could make this very difficult.
