Freemind fully supports Unicode. Unicode is a standard for
identifying letters and numbers that attempts to include
character sets from all languages around the world. Thus,
you can use the script of your choice.
3.4 Formatting a node
Formatting is the process of adjusting the color, size, font,
shape, and many other attributes of the node. Formatting
helps you to distinguish between different types of nodes
and their information. For example, you can use variable
font to highlight different levels of text, colors and shapes to
categorize nodes, and modify the node and edge styles to
suit your needs. Freemind has a set of formatting options as
discussed in this section.
Applying styles to your nodes
You can apply the Fork or Bubble styles to your nodes. The
difference between the two styles is just a visual
presentation. The Bubble style uses an oval shaped bubble to
enclose the data of a node, whereas the Fork style holds the
data without any enclosure.
Applying the Fork style
1. Select the node where you want to apply the style. Click
Format in the menu.
Freemind opens the Format options.
