  2. If not we can go to the outline and edit the text content. The changes will automatically update on the diagram.

  3. Use “Enter” to insert a sibling node and “Tab” to insert a child node.

Adding Multiple Points:

  1. Copy and paste multiple points as child nodes to the mind map.
  2. Ensure that you select the node instead of editing its content when adding.

  3. Choose to automatically split points into different nodes based on line breaks

  1. Customize the diagram’s appearance using themes and styles.
  2. Once finished, export the diagram in the format that best suits your requirements, such as images.
