Calculation Values
You can now do calculations with Visual Mind! By applying values to branches, you can calculate totals for complete subtrees and maps. Ideal for summing up hours, days, costs, etc.

The filter feature allows you to give special focus to the branches that interest you for the moment. You can set the filter according to complete branch styles (High Priority, Important, etc.), individual branch properties (font, color, shape, etc.) and task information properties (priority and completion).

Task information
Be on top of your to-do-lists and project schedules by applying information about priority and completion to branches. In addition to giving you visual feedback of your project and task status, you can combine the task information feature with the filter feature (see the filter feature above) to give special focus on the individual tasks that interest you.

Web Snapshots
Web Snapshots make your Visual Mind maps more appealing. When inserting a web link, Visual Mind can take a snapshot of the actual web page and let the snapshot represent the web link in the map. The result is better looking web links, and raises the general impression of your maps.

More than 2000 new images
More than 2000 images, all in a modern and updated design, has been added to the Visual Mind image libraries. Create appealing maps that leave a polished and professional impression.

Improved search
The search feature of Visual Mind has been greatly improved. The search results are now shown beside the map window. This allows you to examine each search result in detail without closing the search result window.

Improved Microsoft Outlook® linking
Microsoft Outlook® linking has been improved to use both direct links and copies. Direct links give you access to fresh and up-to-date Outlook content. Copies are useful when the map is distributed to users who do not have access to the original content.

Improved handling of linked files
Handling of linked files has been improved to include both relative and absolute linking. You can now copy maps to other drives and locations without risking broken file links.
