Numbering provides a systematic approach to organizing complex concepts, which makes it ideal for educational or professional settings where clarity and precision are crucial. For instance, in an academic context, using numbers like 1, 2, 3, or I, II, and III can help learners follow a logical sequence in their notes, ensuring they grasp the material in a structured manner.
01 Insert Numbering
In a business environment, using A, B, C, or Roman numerals can help delineate different sections of a project plan or outline, making it easy for team members to understand the hierarchy and flow of ideas. Learning how to add them to a mind map in EdrawMind is a simple process you can do in just a few steps.
Step 1: Select a topic in several ways.
- Option 1: Click a single topic.
- Option 2: Click and hold a space in the canvas, then drag your cursor to encompass the desired items for selection.
- Option 3: Right-click a topic, choose Select Topics > Select Same Type.
02 Change Numbering Style
Further customization is available in the numbering drop-down list, allowing you to change the numbering style to suit your preference. Options include counting numbers, Roman numerals, letters, and more. Personalize your mind maps in EdrawMind with the numbering style that best fits your needs, adding a professional touch to your visualizations. Here's how.
03 Change Numbering Level
The default numbering for a selected shape in EdrawMind is number level 1. Selecting a topic and clicking the numbering command button numbers the subtopics as 1, 2, 3, and so on. Here's how you can customize the numbering level in the mind map.
Note:When using Number Level 1 in EdrawMind, selecting only the main topic shape applies numbering exclusively to its Level 1 subtopics. Similarly, the sequencing will be applied to a main topic shape if you select the main idea.
04 Remove Numbering
In some cases, you may want to remove numbering from your mind map. For example, if you decide to rearrange the order of your ideas or you prefer a visual layout without it. Additionally, you can reset the numbering to commence from a different level. Here's how you can remove existing sequencing from your mind map.
