How do I make my map not open all branches as soon as I enter it? I have a lot of things saved inside a map and if it opens automatically I have to close all these branches afterwards

    @Gabriel Monteiro - The open/closed status of branches should be saved for the next time you view the map — similar to any other mind map change.

    In this video, you can see me changing the status of each branch and refreshing. On my end, it seems to be saving each time. This is also true if I access the map from the map listing repeatedly. Is this not occurring for you?

    Hi Gabriel — Have you tried collapsing/expanding the branches by clicking them directly or using the spacebar shortcut? I've found that these methods always save, while the menu option "Show Detail" does not.

    Let me know if that helps!

    Best,

    Andrew

    No, I would like to know if the tool has some kind of configuration that I can disable so as not to open the branches of my mind map automatically
