I would like to have "Shape-Style" as Trigger for Smart-Rules.

I want colorize, emphasize the floating topics according to their style.

I want copy my flow-chart, change the rules, and have a complete different appearance of the chart.

Thank you

If you are using MindManager for Windows, one workaround would be to create a Map Part for each type of node in a flowchart, containing a hidden property or tag declaring the node type. You could then use SmartRules to modify the appearance based on the property value or tag.

Disclaimer: I haven't actually tried this, but it sounds possible :-)


Thank you, but I am tired of workarounds. Somebody gave me this advice already, but it is not working smoothly and easily. I like Smart-Rules and want to stick to them.

Should be an easy fix for the development team.

Thanks again and

Best Regards



I support this, but it should be part of a wider set of topic attribute triggers including fill and line colour, etc, which I suggested a couple of years ago: https://community.mindmanager.com/topic/161-add-a-topic-field-to-smartrules-triggers-and-expand-the-trigger-field-to-include-topic-attributes
