AKS-Labs has released v 1.0 of Mind Pad, a .NET mind
mapping software for Windows.
If you ever asked for
simplicity of mind mapping and for mind map topics with some properties
that are right for your business needs, then Mind Pad is a great tool
to start with.
Creating and linking text
blocks is easy with Mind Pad. But it can do more. Mind Pad allows you
to organize in mind map objects with any properties set. With Mind Pad
scripting you can create your own rules for data management and
Mind Pad suggests a new
approach to mind mapping. Now, mind map is not just a lot of linked
text blocks. Mind Pad allows to create your own frame objects with
unique properties that are most suitable for your business. You can
organize those objects into some hierarchy or map.
For instance, with Mind Pad
Model Editor you can easily create an object called "Contact
Person" and assign to it some really useful properties, such as
Person name, Company name, Next time to contact date. Then you can
create a mind map using "Contact Person" frame object and link new
objects with each other showing the relation between your contacts.
You can create your own
knowledge management system using Mind Pad scripting and macros
functions. For these purpose Mind Pad supports Visual Basic .NET.
Managing objects' and links' formatting is easy with Mind Pad object-oriented approach. You
can use a frame or link styles, specify colors, text settings and
other. When you need to create a new object you just tell Mind Pad what
style it should use for this object or link.
The most great idea of Mind
Pad: Mind Pad is easy to use software. As long as it supports powerful
object oriented-methodology and scripting, it's very simple software.
It's easy to use it for every day mind mapping.
If you really want to make
use of powerful object-oriented mind mapping, then you should spend
some time and learn how to create a frame objects using Model Editor.
This object should have all properties you need to represent some data
in mind map. For instance, if you brainstorm the possibility of finding
and integrating some software solution, then you can create some frame
objects for your needs.
Run Model Editor and spend five minutes to create your
own frame object, for instance name it as "Software
some properties that will represent most valuable information, such as
Solution Name, Company Name, Pricing and Web-Page URL.
Now, when creating mind map, you can use the new
"Software Solution" objects. The resulted mind map will be very
simple and very useful at the same time.
If you ever asked for a simple looking mind map with
ability to create some editable properties for your topics then Mind
Pad is what you was looking for.
