I would like to format the bransch as a "two column bransch".
That would save a lof of vertical space.
If you then use TREE of ORGCHART VIEWS it will look the way you suggest.
I assume this splitting lots of children dynamically across those motherchilds could be a function of the famous MAP 2.2 add-in??
To follow on Ary's suggestion you can apply an Orgchart layout with two branches and a parent in each branch. Each parent is given a tree layout and subtopics added.
You have the option of naming the parent topics as in the following example:
- or not naming them, in which case you can minimise the appearance of the parent topics by formatting them (making them invisible doesn't work so well however as you will end up with a distracting break in the line). In the following example I've formatted the parent topics as circles with no filler and no text, the smallest font size possible and no internal margins:
But since you refer to a textprocessor I looked into that inside MindManager's current posibilities
And I found similar functionality...in the textprocessor feature.
An option for your idea could be to use the tables inside the topic notes.
You can even decide how many columns you want and change those later on.
You can show and hide those with just a quick ctrl-T command
I'm also slightly puzzled though by your comment that the orgchart layout only works in vertical mode, since in your original post you ask about how to ser up a "two column branch", which seems to imply a vertical layout. In any case Ary's suggestion of a table in the topic notes is a good one and would translate better if you want to export to Word.
