If you are one of the numerous persons who like to brainstorm ideas in order to find a solution to a problem, then you might also like to create mind maps so as to visualize the relationships and connections between various topics. MindArchitect is an intuitive application that helps you in creating these mind maps.
The installation procedure goes smoothly, without any issues, and you can start working on your projects within seconds - as soon as you choose the color scheme and style you like best, from the several ones included within the app.
You can easily add topics, sub-topics and child topics, depending on the relations you want to depict, as well as lines, images or text lines, as well as tables, with as many rows and columns you require (additional cells can be inserted at a later time, without too much hassle).
Furthermore, you can add hyperlinks to your topics, so you can access specific webpages with a single mouse click. Additionally, you can adjust the text alignment, along with the font type, color and size as you see fit.
Regardless of the color scheme you initially selected, MindArchitect allows you to customize the colors to ensure increased visibility, both for the topic boxes and for the connecting lines.
Once the diagram is complete, you can export it to PDF or to an image format (such as PNG, BMP or JPEG) so it can be accessed by your colleagues using common software. However, even though within each project, you can create several mind maps, you can export each of them only to separate files, i.e. they will not be combined within a multiple-page PDF file, for example.
All in all, MindArchitect is a reliable application for all those who like designing mind maps and who want to be able to customize their appearance before saving them as images or PDFs. Still, those who need to create large diagrams will need to purchase a license.
