Mind maps and MindManager are great tools for collecting and organising research notes. One problem is keeping track of the source references against each note taken. With MindManager Text Markers you need never lose a source reference again
Using MindManager it is possible to assign the notes to a topic that represents the source. However if you wish to record the notes in a different structure, such as by topics representing the major subject areas, then a different approach is needed. MindManager Text Markers are great for this purpose.
Then add Text Markers to this group as required and assign them to the notes you record as topics. Here the source document has been scanned and is analysed on one half of the screen with notes entered directly into MindManager on the right.
The advantages of this approach are many and include the ability to reorganise and restructure the notes whilst retaining the original source references. Use of text markers in this way also opens up additional possibilities for filtering the notes. Once exported to Word, if the Text Marker option is included then the references will be carried through and the task of creating traditional references becomes much easier.
