FreeMind

FreeMind

FreeMind is a free mind mapping application written in Java. It therefore runs on a wide variety of operating systems, including Linux.

This software enables the user to visualise ideas, projects, brainstorming, concepts, internet research, or any activity that benefits from having a structured overview.

FreeMind has a modular design, and can be used to edit any kind of data, dependent on the current mode. The data is represented as a Mind-Map, while data, behavior, node style, edge style, color, etc. are determined by the mode. It features one-click fold, unfold, and "follow link" operations.

FreeMind provides multiple ways to navigate around a map, including clicking on the map background and dragging it around, as well as horizontal and vertical scrolling.

  • Find facility, where found items are shown one by one as you do "find next", and the map is unfolded only for the current item.
  • Use and edit long multiline nodes; even with newlines
  • Decorate nodes with built-in icons, colors and different fonts.
  • Maps stored in XML format
  • File mode enables you to browse the files on your computer, seeing the folder structure as a mind map
