You can change the color of the selected group. You can also add a description to each group.

Newly created or dragged Topics are placed into the same group as the parent Topic.



Markers

Each Topic can have multiple markers assigned. These markers are selected from Markers section of Main menu. You can choose from a lot of predefined types and shapes and apply them into your mind map.


Labels

You can use labels for annotation or categorization of any Topic. After clicking the Edit Topic Labels button a new window will be opened. Here you can manage all labels assigned to selected topic.

When adding a new label, labels from other topics are suggested.

You can remove labels one by one or all at once. The label editing screen can be accessed by clicking on label's name under each Topic.

All labels can be hidden by clicking Hide Labels. They will appear after editing or triggering button once again.

By clicking Toggle Estimates sum of numerical labels will be calculated for each topic. The sum of numeric labels is calculated sequentially from the leaves to the root topic. This sum will be added to its parent's topic. Numeric labels of topics with sum are ignored.

For example this can be used for adding up estimates on WBS (work-breakdown structure). You can add more than one numerical label and the sum will be calculated as range.
