Hi! there !

I reaaly love vue is the best brainmap tool there is.

But we at this studio need reaaly 3 Most important features to use it fully.

1) DRAG NODE WITH TREE PARENTS AUTOMATICALY

Most brainmap tools do this .
Is extremely important for rapid organization of a tree of contends.

( we know that vue filosophy is to make Nests of nodes and organize it freely / we can make groups if we want to drag many nodes or just selecting them ... alright. )
But when we start to get hundreds of nodes in the workspace and we need to organize the contends / it hurts in waste so much time having to organize nodes manually 1 by one or make groups that we have to group & ungroup for it )

To achieve this feature: the software should recognize if a node parents got a "Tree" format or a "free nest format" and we should have a button that alows to change it for each node ...
That way we would just need to drag a TOP node And all its parents / Should folow along ...

This is extremely important for organization of Huge / Million nodes datasets ... that we do alot here.

2) MAPS INSIDE MAPS / CREATE & LINKING SEVERALL MAPS IN 1

For organization & filesize & ram purposes .. sometimes we need to make several maps ...
But we also would need to have one main MAP That serves as Menu branching to link all other maps ...

VUE should do this as default and automatically ...
That way opening a map would not be just opening one map .
But Allowing users to build a Folder tree of several maps that can be linked and navigated in a outline tree easily.

We should have a way to transform a node and all its parents in anew map Automatically with one button click.
Then in a main map & on that main navigational map & in a extra outline view see and track all maps that are linked into that main map ...

Each new map would be made in a new folder inside the main map directory .
And each new map Created in the main map a folder would be created at that directory were the main is .

That way also the ability to have unlimited folders inside folders.




3) WYSIWYG & HTML NOTES FOR EACH NODE / Unlimited Html notes for each Nodes & Severall notes tree

Another most important feature .

Every node should be able to have its own HTML NOTES .
And be possible to add more than 1 note but a Tree of notes inside each node also.

When we select a node we can add a note to that node.
And add even a tree of notes inside the node

Adding the note will get on that node a small icon and clicking on that litle icon near the node will open a side view with a WYSIWYG Editor and HTML Editing .

To improve Ram Usage / and unlimited contends each note should be saved in a .txt or .hml file in the map main folder/resources/notes

More features for nodes inside nodes ...

We should be able to Drag Entire trees of nodes inside nodes
And arrange them freely .

Current groups constrain nodes movement
And when yu drag anode inside another it becomes lock to a position .

We should be able to move and organise freely nodes inside nodes as if a new map it was.

....


4 ) MAIN MAPS & SUBMAPS / WITH ALL LINKS CONTENDS STRUCTURED - ON SAVE MAIN MAP


RECURSIVE MAPS PACKAGES With all contends on save

Also a option to pack zip All maps and all folders with submaps linked on the root directory.

And each Dragued images into each map on save / a option to save all that map linked images / & resources on each map saved on that map folder/submap subfolder directory.

As option Beside Saving SUbmaps individualy
And Load unload Submaps to Main map on request For Ram Managing

Saving the Main map would save all resources in the map & submaps subfolders structure ..
on a overall on hit the button (Save All Recursive) WOuld save All files all notes / all images & submaps & also all dragged into map attached files linked in map all saved by submaps structure recursively ...

Main Map folder/
------------------ Map.vue
------------------ Contends/htmnotes
------------------ Contends/images
------------------ Contends/filesatached

------------------ Submap1/
------------------------------ SubMap.vue
------------------------------ Contends/htmnotes
------------------------------ Contends/images
------------------------------ Contends/filesatached

------------------------------ SuSubbmap2/
---------------------------------------------- SubSubMap.vue
---------------------------------------------- Contends/htmnotes
---------------------------------------------- Contends/images
---------------------------------------------- Contends/filesatached

---------------------------------------------- SuSubSubMap3/






OVERALL ABOUTS ...
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


There are alot more features we would need ...
but i just dont have much time to explain it right now ...

But this 3 or 4 ones are REAALY REAALY MOST IMPORTANT FEATURES TO MAKE VUE EXPERIENCE PERFECT AND UNBEATABLE ...
We use daily alot brainmaping tools even the highest commercial like MINDMANAGER That got all of that like Dragging Parents Submaps and Html notes even.
Its nothing new ...

But if VUE just apply this 4 "easy to aply" Features i mentioned ...
Even Mindmanager starts to be nothing comparing to it.

Mindmanager got all this awesome Features ...

But when it comes to add Million nodes / each node with a image
- yu can imagine what happens - Filesize gets like 1000mb and gets 30 minutes to each save . And it crashes over and gets ubber slow ...

And if yu make that in VUE
- Million nodes each node with a image ( we have to make that in a daily basis to organize our Cinematic productions )
- Yu can put in Vue 1000 images in 1000 nodes And yu can even visualize it zoom pan entire image resolution and navigate in real-time extreme uge of many gbs visual maps and VUE doesn't even notice or lags ...
- And filesize in vue map saving ? 10mb the most ...
- What makes it perfect for Large production Assets Tracking And assembly of million nodes of projects & files Visual progress Description & organization

WHat just by that makes VUE - ALL REALY the World premier / and most powerfully Brainmapping solution ...

Thank yu so much for listening ...


TO VUE DEVELOPERS: PLEASE AS SOON AS POSSIBLE ADD IN PRIORITY JUST THOSE 4 MORE SIMPLE FEATURES HERE MENTIONED !

And vue will become the best there is !

But please do this as fast as possible cause we all worldwide reaaly need it !!
Have a great time there yu all!


THANK YU DEEPLY SO MUCH !

I have to agree strongly with Ruben. In particular I think it would provide a great improvement in usability if one could have maps inside nodes.

I picture the graphical implementation of this as follows: You select a group of nodes and links, then right click and pick an option which says "Include in Node". An oval (or other node shape) surrounds the selected items and asks for a name. This oval can then be collapsed into a node which can also be expanded to show the items included in it.

Another thing I would greatly apreciate is to be able to use LaTeX as labels or as Notes.

Many thanks to the developers, VUE is the best concept-maping software I've used so far.

Oscar Lazo.

P.D. Is there some way to find out where the development process is going?
