Welcome to the first post in a new series of ‘iMindMap Tricks’. If you don’t know me, I am Owen Hardy, Senior Trainer at ThinkBuzan and long-time user of iMindMap (starting all the way back with Version 1 of iMindMap). Through years of trial and error, playing with features and helping in the development of the software, I have learnt a variety of tricks that I am going to be sharing with you that I hope you will find useful.
This week we are going to look at how you can use the box-branch feature to enhance your presentations. If you have lots of existing PowerPoint or Keynote presentations that you have created over the years, I will show you how using the box-branches within iMindMap is a quick and easy way to combine your existing PowerPoint slides into your Mind Maps.
It’s really visual for the audience, easy to do and will save you time as you can re-use your existing presentation slides.
In the video I used the Windows built in ‘snippets tool’ to take and save my presentation snippets. On a Mac computer use the keyboard shortcut [Command-Shift-4], a cross-hair pointer will appear. Simply drag across the desired area and release, a PNG image file will be saved on your desktop.
I hope you enjoyed this iMindMap. To watch more iMindMap features video tutorials visit help.thinkbuzan.com. If you want to learn more about presentations in iMindMap you can review our ‘How to give a killer presentation with iMindMap 7’ blog post.
