Storyboards are one of the best features of MindMup, and now they are available also in the new 2.0 version. Storyboards allow visual thinkers to create a linear narrative through their thoughts. Mind maps are fantastic for brainstorming and planning, but presentations and articles have a start and an end, and a carefully planned line of thought. This is where storyboards come in. Plan using a mind map, and then just drag nodes over to the storyboard and create a Powerpoint presentation, PDF slides or export it into a Word/Writer document outline, to continue working on the content in an authoring tool.
With MindMup 2.0 for Google Drive, we've redesigned the visual interface so it's easier to use and helps people get the most out of their screen space. For a quick (1 minute) intro on getting started with storyboards in MindMup 2.0, check out this video:

- MindMup 2.0 App - Start here!
- Key info for GAFE/Google Apps Admins
- What's new in 2.0?
- How to import 1.0 maps into 2.0?
- How to use 1.0 Gold subscriptions in 2.0?
There are a few things still notably missing from 2.0, and we're working on moving them gradually. The following features are not yet supported:
- Straight lines/connectors
- Rich text attachments - you can attach a Google drive file, but not add rich text notes directly to a map node yet
- Saving to anything else apart from Google Drive
If any of these features are crucial for you, just keep using 1.0. We don't plan on shutting that down anytime soon. Join the MindMup 2.0 Google discussion group to learn when these things get released.
