Why should I use a mind mapping tool to draft my documents?

Mind maps are suited perfectly for organizing your ideas and drafting your documents, since:

  • you can store the information hierarchically (instead of using a plain table or a list of nodes)
  • you can hide/show (un)necessary information really fast by collapsing or expanding any nodes.
  • you can outline your document by using 1st level nodes as chapters, 2nd level nodes as sections, …, and you can directly add both pdf annotations and your own ideas as leaves to the right place
  • you can change the structure of your drafted document really fast by dragging nodes (representing for instance a section) around and dropping them on another node
