How to create a flowchart diagram?

In the article “Create your first mind map and insert map elements” it was noted that you can open a new map in iMindQ in several ways.

The most common practice is to use the File Menu. From the Ribbons, select the File button, located in the upper left corner and form the provided options, select the New tab. From here, you can select to work with a Mind Map, Organic Mind Map, White Board, WBS Chart or an Organizational Chart.

The first thing that you need to do to create a Flowchart diagram is to open a Whiteboard space from the File Menu (File-> New-> Whiteboard). All the commonly used boxes for creating a flowchart diagram, are placed in a specific folder in the Library panel (Library panel->Shapes tab).

To insert a shape in the map space, simply drag and drop a shape from the Shape Library anywhere you want in the map.

To connect two shapes you can use the relationship option in the Quick Topic menu, drag the relationship from the starting point and drop it to the topic, which will be the ending point.

To insert a label on the relationship, just select the relationship and start typing You can also drag and drop a relationship, by using the Quick Topic menu, from a topic to an empty map space which will create a new Floating topic to the desired place. When creating a flowchart diagram are used normal angled relationships. In order to change the shape of the relationship, do the following steps:

  • Select the relationship;
  • Click on the Relationship dynamic contextual ribbon;
  • From the Style group, click on the Normal Angle relationship shape.

The shape that you change will be applied for all other new relationships, until you decide to change it again.
