The MindView window is made up of several components:

The MindView Button is displayed in the upper left corner of the MindView window. It opens
the MindView Menu, which contains commands affecting the entire document, such as New,
Open, Save, Print or Export.

The Quick Access Toolbar is a component of the Microsoft Office 2007 interface. It is a
customizable toolbar that is available at all times, regardless of the menu tab currently open on
the ribbon. By default, it is located in the upper left corner of the MindView window, next to the
MindView Button.

The Ribbon is also a component of the Microsoft Office 2007 interface. Its tabs, corresponding
to the main activities in MindView, contain all the necessary commands, options and icons,
organized in groups. It is designed to help you quickly find the commands that you need to
complete a task.

The Design tab that appears at the right of the ribbon is a special tab. It contains all the
design options applicable to the current view.

When a particular branch or map element is selected, a Format tab may appear after the
Design tab. It contains all the commands that are specific to the selected object.

Two Panels are displayed by default on the right of the MindView window.

The Workspace is the area you use to design your document.

Customizing the Quick Access Toolbar

The Quick Access Toolbar contains the most frequently used commands. By default, it is located in
the upper left corner of the MindView window, next to the MindView Button.

User Guide

To move the Quick Access Toolbar closer to the workspace area:

Click the Customize Quick Access Toolbar arrow on the right of the toolbar.

Choose Show Below the Ribbon.

You can also add the commands you use most frequently to the Quick Access Toolbar, or remove
commands you use less often. See "Setting up your preferences" for more information.

Minimizing the ribbon

MindView lets you minimize the ribbon to increase the workspace available:

Click the Customize Quick Access Toolbar arrow on the right of the toolbar.

Choose Minimize the Ribbon.

To use the ribbon while it is minimized, click the tab you want to use, and then click the
command you want to use.

As soon as you have made your choice, the ribbon returns to its minimized form.

To restore the ribbon, click the Customize Quick Access Toolbar arrow again and uncheck
Minimize the Ribbon.

You can also minimize the ribbon as follows:

Double-click the current tab.

To restore the ribbon, just double-click any of its tabs.

You can also press Ctrl + F1 to minimize or restore the ribbon.

The layout of the commands, options and icons in the ribbon changes when the width of the
MindView application window is reduced. Controls normally represented by large icons may for
instance now be represented by small icons. If the width of the application window is greatly
reduced, a group may be represented only by its icon.

To view the contents of such a collapsed group, just click its icon.

Using access keys and shortcut keys

To select a command from the ribbon, all you need to do is click the relevant tab to open it, then
choose the command.

You can also use access keys for this purpose. Access keys are different from shortcut keys.

Access keys are used to navigate through the interface and select its different commands
using the keyboard. Each command shown in the MindView Button menu, the Quick Access
Toolbar and the Ribbon has an access key.

Shortcut keys are key combinations such as F1 or Ctrl + O used to perform frequently used
commands. Shortcut keys are not related to the organization of the commands in the interface.
You will find a list of all the shortcut keys used in MindView in "Keyboard shortcuts".

User Guide

To select a command using an access key, start by pressing the Alt or F10 key. You will now
see the first layer of access keys you can use at that point displayed as small labels
underneath each tab or command.

Press the access key for the tab or command you require to see the second layer of access
keys.

For instance, pressing H above will open the Home tab and display its access keys, as
shown below.

Press the key or keys corresponding to the command you want to select.

For instance, pressing B above will insert a branch in your map.
