Idea Bank

The idea bank is a space for you to get down stray thoughts and add them to your mind map later. This ensures you won’t forget a light bulb moment and you don’t have to worry about where it fits into your overall brainstorm straight away.

How the Idea bank works:

1. Click on the bulb icon in the top right cover.

Selecting the bulb icon


2. This will open the Idea Bank window in the top left-hand corner of the screen.
