Wondering how to use Mind Doodle? It’s simple. Sign up for free and you’ll be taken to your first Doodle.
Create a mind map
The best thing to do when you are using Mind Doodle for the first time is to create a mind map.
After signing up, you’ll be taken to your first Doodle, with one central idea on the page. This is the centre of your first mind map.
Name the central idea
In the centre of the page, you’ll see an idea. The text is already highlighted, ready for you to start typing.
Rename your idea, choosing your topic or a specific title for your project.
If you change your mind about the name of the central idea, you can double click to rename it at any time.
When you’ve finished typing, press the enter key or click your mouse elsewhere on the screen. The idea name will save automatically.
Add ideas to your mind map
Click on your central idea or hover over it with your mouse. This will reveal an icon panel.
From left to right, the controls are:
- Plus icon: Add a new idea, connecting to the current idea
- Pencil icon: Edit your idea and develop it with notes, tasks and media
- Chat icon: Send a chat comment relating to this idea
- Paint icon: Change the colour of this idea
- Trash icon: Delete this idea
To add a new idea that connects to your existing idea, click the plus icon.
Type to rename your second idea, in the same way you named your central idea.
Hover over your central idea again and click the plus icon to add another idea that connects with your central idea.
Repeat this process to add lots of ideas that connect to your central idea.
Create branches of ideas
Hover over each of the ideas and click the plus icon to add more connections, creating new branches of ideas in your mind map.
Move ideas around the mind map
It’s easy to move and reposition ideas around your mind map using ‘drag-and-drop’.
Click on the idea you want to move and hold down your mouse.
Drag your mouse across the screen and hold it on the new spot that you’ve chosen for your idea.
Drop the new idea by taking your finger off the mouse.
The idea will have moved to a new position on the canvas.
Repeat this as many times as you like to ensure the mind map looks how you want it to.
Now you’re ready to drill down into the details of each of your ideas.
Develop your ideas
Click once or hover over an idea to reveal the icon panel again. This time, click on the pencil icon.
