So, I took a few minutes and made some discoveries. You can add icons and attributes to nodes and then filter them. Like adding keywords or tags to photos and then doing a search to narrow things down.
To add an Attribute, just click Alt+F9 and a box will open underneath the node.
You can use any kind of annotation here that you want. Let’s say ‘T’ for tag and then a keyword that will help filter the list. I’m feeling lazy. T| groc would do. I don’t keep a grocery list on my computer but that’s beside the point. Just an example.
You can add more than one attribute to any node. Click Tab and it will open a second box.
It’s confusing to view a mind map like that so you can hide the attributes. Click View/Attributes/Hide All Attributes.
Filtering Mind Maps
Meanwhile, over at the Filter options:
If you go to Edit, you can add filters.
These all get added to a drop-down list so you can use them whenever you need to.
There’s already a default list of things you can add as a filter. For instance, icons.
So if you’re using numbered icons to create priorities, you can filter that way.
It depends how complex your life is. Filtering mind maps is another way to sort things out.
