    Thanks for your improvements! I do notice something amiss though. I tried dragging and dropping a web addresses from the address bar from my web-browser as a 'node above' and FreeMind would not respond. It only adds the link by dragging and dropping if I drop it as a child node. This wasn't the case in the previous version of FreeMind, and it was such a beautiful commodity. Cheers.

    Where do we submit niggling feedback on FM 1.0.0 RC 4?

    I looked for the appropriate forum but really could not decide.

    Anyway, it's brief and just a minor nit (with a workaround). The Keyboard shortcut label for "Navigate -> Fold One Level" is actually in the prefs as "Fold On Level". On the Mac, this affects how you can use System Preferences -> Keyboard -> Shortcuts to refer to the function. Setting a shortcut for "Fold One Level" doesn't work. Must not be hitting the right value in Freemind.

    One way to fix it is to use the Freemind prefs and look for the entry, which is where I discovered that this must be a type. In the Freemind prefs, it's listed as "Fold On Level".

    Can we add any hooks into FreeMind 0.9.0 exe?
    Can we customize FreeMind to execute custom java code upon saving the mindmap?
