Suggestion. Open topic notes editor in separate window separate from main window

Working in a medical education unit, I use MindManager to write reviews of scientific data about given themes.
Then it would be better if I could have the map on one screen, and the editor separately on another screen. (horisontal presentation helps, but then much of the map is hidden so the visual display of chapters, subchapters, subsubchapters is lost more or less if the review covers many topics.

Hope this also would be of interest to others too.

I understand and support your request. If you use a separate software tool like a webbrowser etc. you can decide to use the builtin browser or show it in a separate window. However, the topic notes are not made with a separate application but with a built-in text editor. So it may be that it is a bit more complicated to design and develop.

However, If you would use MSWord to edit instead, you should be able to do what you request, The downfall on this is, that you may end up with many attached or linked documents.

The idea has merit. Here is my solution - work around
I use a notepad replacement-(http://www.editpadpro.com/) that is ALWAYS open and when I wish to create or update a note on a map I use this with copy paste.  For more than a few lines, Editpadpro is better than word but it does not have the overhead nor the fat features.
Another technique would be to use WORD and attach the doc file to the  thought!

If you use MSWord... formatting remains.
