Now there's my kind of mind manager. No constraints. Just paper and my mind. I love it already and will buy it surely. Great stuff

1) I changed the background color, exported the new "map" and the PDF ended up with the original yellow background. Would that be a bug?
2) It was definitely easy to take notes, but once the thing started to grow up, it became more difficult to manage. The fact that when I moved one note, none of their children moved with it was a little bit of a problem after a while. I guess this is intentional too, but it became non practical at some point.
3) The fact that the box won't adapt to the new size of the words when set on bold is kind of annoying too. I would prefer if it was automatic. You already answered this, I'm only giving my honest opinion.
4) The place of the bubble where the line connects appears kind of random at this time. The problem appears evident with different lenghts siblings (due to the amount of words in each of them), some may have the line on the center, others on the side, depending on the extension of the words in the bubble. It looks messy. I guess that's intentional as well.
If I want to present this to other people, I would definitely need another application.
(I guess iThoughts for iPad spoiled me. It works better than other more expensive Mac software).

Although I could see lots of reasons to be able to!

Scapple (excuse my language) ****ing ROCKS! This is what I have been looking for for years.
You can expect some bug reports, thoughts, suggestions and such from me in the near future.
Thank you for making this!
