One of our most requested features for the new editor is reintroducing customizable and saveable themes for your mind maps: selecting individual options such as topic background color, line color, and more.

Custom themes in the new editor is currently planned for Q1 of 2023.

The MM team is super welcoming of feedback as they begin designing and implementing the feature - please feel free to detail your specific use case to help us make sure that custom themes in the new editor fits your team's needs 😀

Best,

Andrew

    We definately need custom fields and formating which can be saved like in the old editor.

    And maybe the combination.

    I created custom themes with custom fields and formating included and provide them to my team / customers. They can use the template customize it themselfes and use it.😍😍😍

    Hey @Oliver Wich thanks for your input - I'll be sure to pass it on.

    Quick question - Could you explain what you mean by custom themes with custom fields? Maybe you have a screenshot example you could share to help us visualize exactly what you mean?

    Looking forward to hearing!

    Best,

    Miša

    I mean custom "topics" ;) I have been talking with @Eva Schindler a lot about it the last 12 months 😋

    @Oliver Wich Ah thanks for the clarification! I had a chat with @Eva Schindler and she's brought me up to speed on this.

    I also REALLY hope to see custom themes in Q4🤞!

    (And I love that you used to use them to share templates with your team - that's a great idea😍).

    I never used the old editor but this is great! I finally understand what is meant by custom themes now😂

    I wanted to provide some more details, of why "more depth" is required.

    This is a mind map I created (back in university) using MindManager. I use "Progressive summarization" and use the same colors of text markers when studying.

    In Mind Meister, anything but the most basic map currently looks like so. I would need to invest a lot of time in formatting every single branch (especially as "format painting" is missing) when I really need only organic, default formatting that radiates out from the center and gets smaller and smaller. Like a mind map is supposed to :-)

    Again, as you implement "Custom themes", PLEASE don't just implement one or two levels, that would not help. Instead, solve the problem for everyone, permanently.

    I can't find a screenshot of MindManager (they call it "Modify Style View" I think). Here is how SimpleMind does it. The key is being able to define 1-n styles and not be limited to 2:

    And please don't forget that the Admin of a Team can provide custom templates and topics AND the users can also build their own in addition.

    In the old Version, we provided Themes and Custom Topics, so the Users didn't have to create them theirselves.

    But the custom Topics that Users created by their own and saved them were visible for EVERYONE. 🙀

    So after a few weeks there were like 100+ Custom Topics and it was a total chaos.

    Long-Words Short:

    We can provide Customs which can be used by everyone and the user can create and save their own, which other users don't see 😍

    THANK YOU VERY MUCH FOR YOUR EFFORTS!🙏

    I totally agree! We need be able to create mindmaps with decrasing size/font for inner subtopics! Awesome idea!
