My feature request (developers behold) would be to have, in each binder item, a "Map" section (like you have "notes" section) accessible via an icon on the right sidebar. It would be like Scapple opening inside that pane with all its functionality (pan, zoom, relationships via drag and drop...).
I know this may "kill" Scapple as a standalone app, but maybe there are ways to circumvent this (like allowing this Map section to be opened only if Scapple was installed as well).
I am a Scapple user too, but I find I don't use it that much. When I do a mind-map, I do it in more "powerful" map software. But as a complementary pane inside Scrivener, I would certainly use it a lot more, given its simplicity and bare-bone nature.
An image is worth a thousand words (they say), please see the attachment.
Developers, you can slap me now.

I so wish the interoperability of Scapple export and Scrivener Import worked exactly the way MindNode worked.
I will have to group the cards manually to rebuild the higherarchy that already exists in Scapple.

Well that’s the problem right there: there no hierarchy in Scapple.
... isn’t the kind of thing software can easily figure out ... overlap them and straddle notes between them).
Meanwhile you might have better results dragging your Scapple board into a freeform corkboard in Scrivener. That will at least preserve your visual interpretation of hierarchy.

That is, in the OP's wish there was no suggestion that the nodes in the maps relate in any way to the Binder structure. That was, I take it, the whole point of his/her last post.
