The MindGenius interface consists of File menu, ribbon navigation, task pane, map explorer and template and support pane
The map editor is where you create and edit your maps, brainstorms or projects.
Template and Support Pane:
The template and support pane contains a categorised list of templates that can be helpful in creating your maps. Templates contain pre-defined content that can help you better explore a subject. Switch to the second tab to see a list of support links and resources.
The map explorer contains a view of your map arranged in a hierarchical tree structure. You can use the map explorer to focus down on a specific area of your map or to bring an area into view.
The task pane provides access to several different panels; the notes editor, the quick-access category gallery, question sets and picture gallery. The active panel is selected using the toolbar along the bottom edge of the pane.
The file menu is the location for some of the core application functionality like Printing, Importing and Exporting.
The ribbon houses commands used to create, format, analyze and action your map. The ribbon is split into several different tabs, each tab contains functionality linked to a process, e.g. map creation, formatting, analysis, tasks and export.
