Hi there, using MM12 for education it would be great if you could alter the thickness of the topic boxes (shapes). This would improve the ability to emphasize certain sub topics or just enable the main topic to stand out. Especially when creating displays for dyslexic children etc. Can this already be done on MM12 as I can;t seem to do it. Many thanks in advance

You cannot change the line thickness of the built-in topic shapes (the ones selectable from the "Format Topic" dialogue), but you have two other choices.

First, there are a number of alternate topic shapes in the library which can be used instead of the built-in ones. Many of these have thicker borders.

Second, you can add your own custom topic shapes by importing an image into the topic shapes folder in the library, so if you can create a suitable box in a bitmap editor, you can create your own custom topic shapes. After importing it, you can right-click on it in the library and define the text area for use within the shape, so there are few limits on what can be done.
