How can I get MM to start with a blank map instead of having sample nodes?

On the web, anytime I create a new map it starts with 2 level 1 and 4 level 2 items.

I cannot remove them without clicking on them, so it is very inconvenient. I want a blank map I can just start typing, I don't want to have to use my mouse to click on them. If I hit tab it creates a new node.

I want new maps to just start with a empty center node. I would prefer not even having a title, because the only way to change the title is to use the mouse and highlight the text.

    Hi @Gerald Stowers 👋🙂

    Unfortunately, MindMeister always starts a new project with some example nodes. But you can save an own prepared template. All you have to do, is to delete all example nodes of a fresh created mind map and to save it, let's say under "my fresh and clean template" 😉

    You can duplicate this template as often as you like to start working with it as you like.

    Best, Jörg
