Increase the height of the ink input field to write extra lines

You can write more than one line in the ink input feld of a topic when using MindManager in ink mode. Always start your writing at the top left corner of the box not on the line.  If you write the second part of your “sentence” above the first it becomes the first part of the sentence when converted to text.

Tablet PC - Two lines of ink in MindManagerTo make it easier to write multiple lines, increase the Height of the ink input field in the MindManager Options. Something between 90 and and 120 allows me to enter 2 or 3 lines.

    That is just what I needed and in a form most readily understood. I am accustomed in old versions to increase the ink-space height to maximum for minuting professional institution meetings. I have now done so in MM 2012 and it will assist no end! There truly are MindManager Gurus, Gurus’ Gurus… but only one AJW – even if your friend says so. 😉

    By the way, you draw to our attention that “If you write the second part of your “sentence” above the first it becomes the first part of the sentence when converted to text.” Is that not a new and somewhat unexpected change? I previously found that something added afterwards would come “after” wherever it was placed. Or is it just that I have been more careful in recent past version usage?

    Hi Maurice

    My experience was always that upper line of ink appeared before the lower line of ink in the ink to text conversion. If you add it on the same line it is fine.

    Hi Andrew,

    but sometimes the maximum hight (150) of the input field is not enough. I just want to write down more than 3 lines when it comes to a long sentence. And sometimes I want to draw a bigger sketch. Is there any way to do those? It will be perfect if I can draw and write anything without the limitation of the input field.
