Getting the most out of MindManager 7-templates, styles, and ribbons

by Tris Hussey on June 29th, 2007

MindManager 7 Pro brought the Office 2007 look and feel to MM users, but the Ribbon Bar might get annoying for some people.  Brain Friedlander has a quick movie on saving space:

Many of us are really enjoying the new Fluid Ribbon Interface in MindManager 7, which has made the program much more accessible. However, there are times when we might want to hide the ribbon once we start working on the mind map. Here is a tip on how to hide the ribbon in MindManager 7. I hope that you enjoy this tip!Hiding the Ribbon in Mindmanager 7

I did that simple little thing…and wow I feel like I have a ton more room to map in!

Okay that’s awesome but what about those maps?  Have you even looked at the templates and styles included in MM 7 Pro?  I didn’t think so.

I was working up a map last night and I thought I’d try a new look … so looking through the styles I found this great corkboard - sticky note look (click for large version):

There are basic styles and ones that are more interesting.  Have a “look” you like?  Make your own custom style!  It’s easy to always have the kind of map you want.  Just get your map tweaks, go up to the button…and choose Save As… you can make it a Style (just the look and feel) or a template (look and feel, plus the stuff you already have in the map as a starting point).

Speaking of templates, check out these two cool templates for a weekly planner and a to-do list:


Not bad eh?  See getting more out of an application, even if it is just to have a little fun with it, is just a matter of exploring around.  You can submit your own templates and styles here … I’ll even host them for you if needed!
