Visual Mind 6 feature list

Use the map explorer to manage and survey all of your maps! Located on the left side of the screen, the surveyor will give you access to all open maps, as well as recently used maps. Map related tasks like opening maps, closing maps and switching between maps can now be done without leaving the Visual Mind main screen. Juggling with multiple maps has never been easier!

With the ability to change font, font size, color, etc. you can now give your branch notes a professional and appealing look. You can also include web hyperlinks and e-mail addresses and take advantage of more sophisticated word processing tasks like alignment and lists.

The new export-to-Word feature, allows you to convert a Visual Mind map into a professional Word document with a mouse click. This feature allows you to also include map screenshots, images, web links, file links, etc. in the Word document and ensures that the readers of the document get a full view of the matter.

With the new export-to-Powerpoint feature, it takes just seconds to convert your Visual Mind map into a professional and visually appealing Powerpoint presentation. The export feature separates and displays all map parts into slides thereby creating a presentation with a logical and intuitive flow.

Visual Mind 6 comes with a set of map templates that may save you time when creating new maps. You can also develop your own map templates.

With the new password & encryption features, Visual Mind can now hold your confidential information in a safe and secure manner.

You can now use Visual Mind for an even wider range of tasks, as the software now supports the following map layouts: Circular, left-to-right, right-to-left, outline, tree, organization chart and affinity diagram.

To serve you better with handling, discussing and presenting large maps, Visual Mind now support automatic numbering of branches.

While earlier versions of Visual Mind supported exporting a map to BMP image files, Visual Mind now also supports exporting to JPEG and PNG image files.


Visual Mind 6 supports export to and import from the mind mapping software Pocket Mindmap that runs on Pocket PC devices. Simply transfer maps to/from the Pocket PC for optimal mobility.
