Creating a new map

Each new map you create is based on a Map Template. When you first start MindManager, you see the Map Chooser where you can choose the Map Template to use for a new map. If you prefer to automatically begin a new map on startup, you can change this behavior. Within MindManager, you can create a new map from the default Map Template or from a Map Template that you select.

To begin a new map when you start MindManager:

  1. In the Map Chooser click the Map Template you want to use as the basis for your map.

  2. Click Choose.

To automatically begin a new map on startup:

  1. Choose Mindjet MindManager> Preferences.

  2. Under On Startup, select "Create a new map".

To begin a new map from within MindManager:

  • Choose File > New to create a new map from the default Map Template.

  • Choose File > New from Template to choose a specific Map Template for the new map.

By default, the "Blank Map" Map Template is used for new maps. For more information on choosing a different default Map Template for new maps, see the Related Topics below.
