Custom Map Styles for MindView 5

One of the great features of MindView has been the no fuss approach to formatting maps.  Until now it has been as simple as selecting a map style from those built in to the software and getting on with the job.  This is great if you find a style you like however until MindView 5 it was neither possible to edit the styles nor to create your own.

All this has changed and MindView 5 includes a Custom Style designer function.  From the Design tab, you can now select 'Custom Style' and create New styles and Edit or Delete existing ones.

Once created the style is added to the drop down selector panel and can be applied easily to new or existing maps.

Using this new feature I've created my own styles and am working happily with them.

For a detailed walk through of this feature have a look at the video on the Matchware web site at http://www.matchware.com/en/products/mindview/upgrade_features.htm#custommaps
