Hi. I really like Goalscape, but the Anchor Bar. Is it possible to disable the Anchor Bar?

    Hello Åge

    Welcome aboard! Thanks for the great feedback – and for your suggestion.

    The Anchor Bar, as its name implies, 'anchors' the goal map to ensure a consistent presentation (like the having North at the top of a conventional geographical map). It is also the location for the collapse/expand goal levels controls (down and up arrows).

    To see the detail in any area of your project you can use Focus View: double-click on any goal that has subgoals – or use the right-click context menu option or (for the selected goal) the Goal Edit menu option.

    If I have misunderstood what you are asking here please post again.

    All the best

    Thank you

    I think we are on different planets. Your tool is fantastic, but please remove this anchor. The anchor is of little use. Takes too much focus and space. I really don’t see the point.

    Hello Åge,

    do you have a suggestion on how to collapse and expand levels without the anchor bar? See attached image. The levels displayed need to correspond to the screen Resolution and the users liking.

    regards, Marcus

    Sorry Marcus. I don't think its possible to hide the anchor bar. Your example really shows the disturbing anchor bar. It "destroys" a nice map with unecessary noise. I would prefer to switch the anchor bar on or off. Expanding and collapsing could be done with keyboard shortcut or with a right click menu.

    Mr. Parslow, please remove the anchor bar. I love mind mapping and your circle concept is genious.
