Mind Map Maker: What’s New

New Colour Themes

Mind map maker colour palettes

We have added 3 new colour palettes to our Mind Map maker; Original, Modern and Pastel. This means that you now have the option to choose from over 250 colours!

New Node Shapes

With 10+ different node shape options, expressing your mood and thoughts has never been easier. With the option to add clouds, speech bubbles, diamonds, stars, triangles and lots more, there are loads of new shapes to try in your Mind Maps.

Background Colour

The same colour themes which are available for the nodes can also be applied to your Mind Map’s background. Try using different colours to bring your ideas to life!


Have you ever wished you could go back in time and change the past? Unfortunately, we cannot help you with time travel (yet!) but we can help you undo or redo any recent changes made to your Mind Map. This gives you more freedom to experiment with your creation without needing to worry about not liking the end result.

Select All Nodes

If you wanted to select all the nodes in a Mind Map before now, you had to select them one by one. Thanks to the new “Select all nodes” function, you can get the same result with a single click. Here’s to productivity!

Wow! It’s impressive, isn’t it? And now, what better way to show you how all this comes together than a live example?

* Disclaimer: we are great at making superb learning tools but we are not artists so please do not hold it against us if this Mind Map is not a piece of art… 🙂 If you are a talented artist and creator, please do your magic and send us your best Mind Map. We would love to see it!
