       freeplane - Program for working with Mind Maps.


       freeplane [-X menukey] [-S] [-N] [-h] [--help] [file1] [file2] [...]


       freeplane is a free and open source software application that supports thinking, sharing
       information and getting things done at work, in school and at home. The core of the
       software is tools for mind mapping (also known as concept mapping or information mapping)
       and using mapped information.

       Occupying the middle ground between an editor and a diagramming tool, Freeplane allows the
       user to add content as quickly and naturally as they would in a text editor, yet producing
       structured content that can be manipulated as easily as a diagram.

       Features include ordering ideas in nodes and freely positionable nodes, connecting nodes,
       automatic/conditional styles, scripting, add-ons, LaTeX, search/filtering, different
       export features, printing, password protection of nodes/maps and more.

       See for a full list of
       applications and features.

       This manual page was written for the Debian(TM) distribution because the original program
       does not have a manual page. Instead, it has documentation in the Help menu and the
       Freeplane wiki (
