2) You can use parentheses () to write on the links between the text.
3) You can create multiple different levels (hierarchy) by using the tab button.
4) The changes you make wont appear until you click the "Draw MindMap" button
5) You can move the items around by just clicking and dragging each item.
6) To print first right click "save as", save it to your folder, open it up and click "print".
