    Hi Tõnis,

    we have version 2.7.1+ installed, after updating from version 2.4.9.

    Is it possible that our problems come from skipping versions 2.5 and 2.6?

    Thanks for your help!

    I cannot find a way to branch to a second level. I'm trying to create a writing exercise where one idea is developed into second level ideas and those can be developed into a third level. But I cannot seem to get to the third level. Every time I add a node, it adds itself to the original idea.

    Actually I figured it out. On my keyboard I had to choose the node from which I wanted to build a new association and then hold down the FUNCTION key and then hit the INSERT button.

    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 Alvaro!

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