I'm new to mind mapping and to FreeMind, but I've been using it for a little while now and really like it.
I am wondering if it's possible to automatically set the format of nodes depending on the depth level of the node. For instance, I would like to set the font size one step (or some fraction) smaller than it's parent node so if I start with a 12 point font in the parent node, I would have say a 10 point font in it's grandchild node.
I've searched through a number of the questions and haven't found this question posted beforehand, but if someone has asked (and answered) than I would equally appreciate being pointed there.
Have you seen the menu entry "Format > Automatic layout"?
This probably servers your needs.
I believe the preference settings for "Format > Automatic Layout" are only available in 9.0 Release Candidates. If you're using the older 8.x version, you might want to try downloading 9.0_RC4
