Working with Branches
As you build up your map, you will collect many ideas. You may find it helpful to hide parts of the map, to concentrate on the work at hand.
Click the 'Expand' or 'Collapse' branch icons at the top-right of the Idea to show or hide its leaf Ideas. Connect Ideas by dragging one over another -- or use the 'Create Links' button. View mixed mode with the 'Map|Text' button. With the text panel open, Ideas moved on the Map will change essay structure in the document. The available command buttons on the closest row will change depending on which panel is active.
