What is a mind map?

A mind map is a diagram that shows the relationships between content items. Mind maps provide users with a way to map out, edit, and repeat similar content as map items. Smart mind maps enable users to more efficiently add and edit repetitive content.

Overview of mind maps

  • Easily add shapes (the mind map layout automatically updates to accommodate new shapes)

  • Lines are connected to shapes (no need to manually adjust lines after moving shapes)

Where can I find mind maps?

You can find mind maps by clicking Templates and looking for Mind Maps on the left panel. Click here to access all the Mind Map templates.
