    It would be greater if, right-to-left languages was supported too. But in fact. it is wonderful!

    I tried several commercial mindmappers, but this is far more powerful than any of them. Obviously this is the best mind mapping tool out there. I use it for learning and for working also, for about 2 years, so its really time to give it 5 stars.

    Thanks for the update, but version 1.3.15 will not launch stopping with an "Unable to load Java Runtime Environment" dialog. Freeplane 1.3.12_pre06 continues to work just fine on OSX 10.10.2 Yosemite.

    Fantastic tool to organize basically everything, been using it for so long I can't remember when I started. If it disappeared I would have a big struggle going managing my work in any other way. Awesome features for me: 1. Being able to add as many attributes as I want to nodes (all other mindmap tools at most can have one) 2. The ability to script things to automate, so I get the features I want it to have (with a little programming skill and the multiple attributes feature you can achieve a lot without much effort and have different views on the same information. Just like it is done in the GTD addon.) 3. Import/Export functionality. (The possibility to create custom xslt for exporting is brilliant.) 4. Some really good addons (like Freeplane GTD and Mindslide to name a few) are probably reason enough for people that are non-programmers to use it 5. Customizability. You can do so much, but it might not be apparent at a first glance. 6. No need for installation and being multi-platform. Can use it on both on pc and mac and share the same map that is in the "cloud". But the number one killer feature is managing a mindmap with only the keyboard! This is the only mindmapping tool I know of where I don't need to switch between the mouse and keyboard all the time. Of course that means that you are relying on the automatic layout, but there are other tools for making pretty presentations, this is a hard core information management tool. A very big thanks to the developers which are building such a great tool and are so helpful in the support forum so I have never needed to ask a single question myself as I've already found the answers there!

    Not being a programmer, I'm reluctant to give only a 4 to the design. But I wanted to note that some of the things that are hard-coded - like the position of the user-added icons in the menu) - are not as good as I think they could be. (Since I use my own icons a lot, I'd like the option of setting the user icons to be at the top of the menu rather than at the bottom.) I'd like to be able to customize the toolbars in general. Etc. These minor things aside, I have nothing but praise for this program and for the development team. Add to this that they have done this through SourceForge, and I'm blown away.
