Seeing focus question on cmap diagram

Post by nrkashdan » Wed Apr 06, 2011 2:33 pm

I suggest that the focus question be an object that can be displayed, styled, and moved on a cmap diagram with an optional border box around it.

Since the focus question is so important to the diagram there ought to be a way to have it visible, especially for printing. I am a newbie and did not see an obvious way to do this.

My temporary workaround is to copy the focus question text to the header.

Or, does anyone else have another idea?

Thanks and happy mapping ;) ;-norm

If you add the Focus Question to the Cmap's properties, it will be displayed in the title of the window for the opened Cmap.

Thanks. I see that.

I was looking for the ability to show it on the diagram itself in order to include it in either printing, or as I usually do, creating an image that I can then incorporate into a presentation.

In those cases we usually use a 'concept' node at the top left of the Cmap, with different style, with the focus question.

Perfect. I created a standalone concept, "Focus Question", changed the box style and located it in the upper left of the diagram.

Thanks for the help. ;-norm
