Change General Map Layout

One of the features distinguishing EdrawMind from other mind-mapping tools is that it allows users to switch layout styles within seconds, giving them more flexibility and control over the project. EdrawMind eliminates the need to manually rearrange your mind map elements, saving you valuable time and effort.

The best part is that this feature helps you switch between layout styles without losing the content of the original layout. It's an effortless way to update the look of your mind map and update it to suit different purposes and audiences.

For example, the horizontal timeline layout would be a good choice when presenting a project timeline. But the classic map layout would be more suitable if you are still collating ideas for a presentation. Try it out by following the step-by-step instructions below.

Step1Open the mind map you wish to edit.
Step2Go to the Map tab bar on the right-side panel.
Step3From the Layout section, click Layout dropdown list.
Step4Select the layout style you wish to use from the available options. The software will automatically transform the mind map into the selected layout.
