It's no secret that MindMeister is full of extensive customization options 😍, but did you know that you can:

All you have to do is:

  1. Select the parent topic.
  2. Click on the ellipsis in the top-right corner.
  3. Under Shape, click Show as Boundary and choose a color.

There's no denying that this is decorative 💅, but you can also use these colored backgrounds to add more emphasis to important ideas or you could make a key and use the backgrounds to color code ideas.

Have you ever add colored backgrounds to mind map topics? Share some screenshots in the comments!

    I can confirm that this is a great way to group together topics with shared themes! I use these backgrounds in teaching all the time😀.
