User can zoom in and out of Mind Map based on the selection made in the Zoom level navigation section. The range is from 25% to 300%. When user switches the zoom level, the Mind Map zoom level will change accordingly. By default, the zoom level will be 100% when page is opened or refreshed.


On their Mind Map, the creator or collaborator can make visible comments to all users able to view/edit. On click of this button, a drop-down list will be presented to add, edit and remove the comments. The functionality will work exactly the same way as on the Preview screen comment option.

Do you wish to continue?”
