Any mind map can be used as a template for new mind maps. In this case its styles and nodes are copied to the new map.

  • Use action "File->new map from template..." to select a template map.
  • There are standard folders with user templates and standard templates which can be accessed from the "new map..." action, "save as..." action and "copy styles..." action.


Default template

"File->New map" action asks no questions and uses 'standard.mm' as a template. It is first searched in the user template folder (use Tools->Open user directory, then open the template folder), then in the installation template folder.

This default template could be changed in preferences (Tools > Preferences > Environment > Standard Template File)
