    However, I wish there was even a minimal help doc that would tell us how to re-position, for example, a finished mindmap that (even fully zoomed out) runs off the page.

    I did figure out how to do these things and I will be doing an example exercise for my students.

    Sry for this question, which might be stupid anyway but I'm not quit sure about the Mindmap activity on moodle works:
    Do you think it is possible that I have 15 students working on one mindmap at the same time?

    Unfortunately no.. The current method how this plugin works, does not support synchronous editing.

    Hi Tõnis:

    I have installed the activity in my moodle 3.1, but the toolbar is not displayed in Chrome, only in Firefox. What can be cause this?

    Hi Alvaro!

    Make sure Google Chrome is not blocking Flash execution on your Moodle site. If flash is blocked nothing will appear.

    Hi Tonis, great plugin, thanks!!
    1. I don't get it how I can create a sub-topic to a topic. "Insert key" - don't have on my MacBook. Any tips?

    2. How about adding the possible functionality of making a topic into a clickable link?

    1. If you dont have "Insert key" on Mac then you can use the Mindmap toolbar Insert node(Plus icon) button to add new nodes. You could also use Google to find out which button works on Mac as insert key, like PC has.

    2. Unfortunately this plugin uses old legacy flash application as base and it is not anymore extendable. Maybe in near future i get the time to build a HTML5 based application and there would be possible to make that change you asked.

    1. No. Its flash based and does not work on mobiles.
    2. Groupings available only if you create separate maps and add restrictions with Moodle core accessibility possibilities.
    3. Yes. As long as flash exists.
    4. It is as secure as your Moodle. It does not encrypt nodes..
