How to change topic line thickness on shapes? Seems like a very basic configuration for mindmapping tools and I resist to think Mindjet doesn't allow to do this...Is this hidden somewhere or does not have this funcionality at all in the Mindjet15 Version?

You can increase the line width by right clicking the central topic and selecting ":Format topic."
Then check "Organic appearance" and increase the line width.

Thank you Sia, This is not exactly what I was looking for. I would like to individually make topics shapes thicker. This may create greater context to the information. Seems this capability is not available in Mindjet so I hope this can be considered in future and more significant upgrades.

This can be done (since MM 2002) using the Topic Shapes in the library tab (right side of your screen)

This feature is described in the Help. You can also add your own shapes

I also wanted to increase the line weight of some of my topic shapes. I tried the above solution, and even created my own shape in Adobe Illustrator. However I was disappointed to find that the shapes are just bitmaps and not vector graphics, which means that as you resize them, they simply stretch in a pixelated manor and become distorted.

I agree with the OP in that this should be a core functionality of the program. You are already drawing the shape - just modify the line weight parameter of the algorithm to the user's requirement. Expecting users to be satisfied with cheesy bitmaps is unacceptable for an application at this price point.
