Add Notes to Topics (Old Version)

Old Article

Watch out! This article refers to the old version of MindMeister. If you're a new user, head over to this article to find the most up-to-date information on this topic.

You can add notes to the topics in your mind maps to provide additional information, descriptions or definitions without cluttering up your map. Notes can be added using the Notes widget in the sidebar on the right. Just select a topic in your mind map, and then click into the yellow field in the sidebar to enter or paste your text. 


Notes are saved automatically when you leave the notes box by clicking anywhere on the canvas of the map, so there is no need for a manual save.

However, we do have an option for manual saving if you need it: Ctrl+S

To delete a saved note, simply click on the Delete icon in the bottom left corner of the Note widget. 

Click on Advanced... to open a larger note editing dialog and use formatting functions. 
All topics with attached notes will be marked with a note icon after the idea title.

You can view the note when hovering over the note icon for more than a second. This is especially useful in view or presentation mode when there is no sidebar available.
