#Actualsunandshadow

Cayra. In my opinion it is the prettiest free mindmapping software, but it has several usability problems. It seems to have a memory leak, so it gets slower and slower as you use it unless you close and re-open it. It doesn't remember custom colors properly and the background color can't be changed. Nodes can't get bigger and line-wrap to hold sentences. There are no node options besides oval and no arrow options aside from going from one node to the other. Also it remembers the positioning of the nodes but not the curviness of the arrows, and you can't adjust the arrows by hand; thus each time I re-opened it I wasted some time yanking everything around to be positioned nicely enough to export as an image. I also wish it used png and/or svg instead of jpg.
