How to create mindmaps in draw.io for Confluence and Jira

I use draw.io to visualize all of our processes and workflows. I wanted to create mindmaps yesterday (what you can of course do with the standard shape libraries) but I am missing a few features that would make it much more convenient to have mind maps in draw.io. Stuff that I would love to see:

  • move shapes and sub-shapes as trees
  • easily create new sub-topics or branches

Are there ways to have a mind mapping feature in draw.io or are you planning to have it?

Hi there. Actually, we already offer the features that you requested! When you go to the left-hand library panel in draw.io, use the search shapes option and type in mindmap. Embed the mindmapping container and use the connectors for sub-topics, branches etc. to create your mindmap. You can even add new shapes with your keyboard. We recommend you to have a look at our Youtube playlist https://drawio.link/mindmaps to see all of our mindmapping features (moving around trees is also possible by the way :slight_smile:).
