XMind is the best alternative to NovaMind

Posted on August 17th, 2016 in Promotion | No Comments »

The company that has been developing NovaMind is being shut down. NovaMind users may be wondering what is the best alternative to NovaMind?

Without doubt, XMind is the best alternative for NovaMind. Like NovaMind, XMind is a cross-platform mind mapping tool, which supports Windows, Mac and Linux. Based on the Eclipse platform, XMind ensures the consistent interaction on both Windows and Mac. Consistency in cross-platform interfaces allows users to leverage their existing knowledge of an interface on one platform to make use of a similar application interface on a different one. What’s more, XMind for Mac has all the same features of XMind for Windows, while some Mac mind mapping tools have very limited features compared to its Windows version.

This year we published XMind 7.5 with XMind Cloud. XMind Cloud supports online editing, which allows you to access, view, and edit your mind maps wherever you go — from a phone, a tablet, or any computer. And XMind for iOS is coming this Fall.

Now, we offer 30% discount for NovaMind users who want to use XMind Pro. This offer is valid only before end of September. Don’t miss out on this limited-time offer!

XMind is the alternative for FreeMind

Posted on July 5th, 2016 in Tips | 3 Comments »

Mind mapping is a graphical way to represent ideas and concepts. It is a visual thinking tool that helps make brainstorming, organize and analyze information, manage projects, comprehend and generate new ideas.

XMind offers a free, easy-to-use and open-source version of mind mapping software, which is an excellent alternative to FreeMind. Furthermore, XMind supports exporting to and importing from FreeMind files.

Open Source & Award Winner

XMind is an open source software. We opened the source of XMind (except some professional features). Download Source Code.

BTW, XMind is the best Eclipse RCP application 2008, the best project for academia 2009 in the SourceForge community, and one of the PCWorld 100 best products of 2010.

Create a Map

When you first open XMind, you’re greeted by a clean and intuitive interface. Creating a mind map in XMind is very straightforward: XMind offers you a number of ready-made mind map templates and themes that make it easy for anyone to create beautiful mind maps. These templates and themes are easy to use and free. You can add topics and subtopics using the Enter and Tab key. This makes it easy and convenient to add a large number of topics to your map very quickly.

XMind automatically positions topics. If you want to change the layout of your mind map, XMind offers you several options. There are 16 structures available in XMind such as Fishbone, Tree chart, Org chart, Matrix etc., and you can change the map structure easily in the Properties view.

Fishbone Structure

Matrix Structure

XMind supports using different structures in the same mind map.

In XMind, you can create a Floating Topic by double-clicking a blank area of the map. When you want to add an idea or piece of information to your mind map, but aren’t quite sure where it fits in the hierarchy of topics and sub-topics, you can temporarily put it in an open area of the workspace as a floating topic. XMind also enables you to add sub-topics for the floating topic and you can change the structure of the floating topic.

Enrich a Map

In order to enrich mind maps, XMind offers many small “accessories” we can use in our mind maps.

Attachment. You can attach a file to an XMind topic in two ways: add a hyperlink or an attachment to the topic. All attachments travel with XMind files during sharing, so that anyone you share your maps with will be able to view the attached file.


Summary. Summary is a brief description of topic areas on the map, and is used to highlight the major points for helping the audience quickly grasp the purpose of the map topics. Like other types topic, you can change the style of the summary and create subtopics.


Clip Arts. As the saying goes, “Pictures are worth a 1000 words.” The right images make a more intuitive mind map. To help express your thought visually, you can spice up your maps with hundreds of clip arts.
