By default MindGenius has Auto Layout turned on. Auto Layout helps you make the best use of screen space by distributing your branches around the available workspace. You can turn off this behaviour and position your branches where you want them by disabling Auto Layout:
- Switch to the "Format" ribbon
- Open the "Map Settings" menu
- Select "Auto-Layout" to toggle it off
Once Auto Layout has been disabled you can click and drag your level one branches to wherever you want them. Note that the children of your level one branches will also be repositioned and will maintain their relative positions.
To Toggle Auto-Layout On/Off
So as to maintain some sense of order you cannot freely reposition branches below level one.
