Mind maps in MindMeister are fully customizable. Choose between a mind map, list and org chart layout depending on how you want to organize your ideas.
Explore the Layout Options
There are three types of auto-layout in MindMeister: mind map, list and org chart.
Mind Maps: In mind maps, first-level topics are organized around the central topic in a radial structure. Second-level topics branch from the first-level topics in the same way.
List. In this layout, topics are aligned in a single, vertical list. Second-level topics are placed underneath their parent topics, slightly indented to show hierarchy levels.
Org Chart. In org charts, first-level topics are aligned horizontally underneath the central topic. Second-level and lower-level topics are aligned vertically beneath these using the list structure.
