Mind Map Results with Context Organizer

April 20, 2011

Context Organizer for MindManager can be used to create visual summaries of any document or web page – right from within MindManager (see: Context Organizer post).

Included within the add-in is an options dialogue that can be used to create summaries with more or less elements and whether selected elements are displayed expanded or not.

imageThe next group of options determine whether grouping branches are inserted into the map and whether these groups are to be displayed initial either expanded or collapsed.

The best way to explain what the different combinations of these options result in is to illustrate with a few examples.  Here a Wiki page on business analysis is used as the summarised article.

1. All Grouping Branches Selected, Expand Only “Top” Keywords

2. All Grouping Branches Selected, Expand “Top” and “Other” Keywords

3. No Context Branch Group – Summary and Keywords Connected Directly to the Central Topic

 4. Only “Summary” Branch Group Selected, No Keywords Expanded

As you can see, this last set of options attaches all the keywords and the summary grouping branch directly to the central topic.  Depending on the topic layout options you have selected in MindManager (right map, tree, split tree and so on), the keyword topics will be displayed in the relevant map layout.  Here the layout is “Map” giving the basic mind map radiant layout.
