Running FreeMind 0.7.1 on Debian Linux and Java 1.4.2.03 (j2sdk1.4) with my Omnibook 800 laptop (78 MB RAM, P166) just fine.  I haven't tried any big projects with it yet, but so far it's very responsive. --[[User:Nullman|Kyle]] 09:14, 30 Jan 2006 (PST)

As of version 0.9.0 you can also use Ctrl+left and Ctrl+right to move a node in the desired direction (not only to change the side with respect to root, try it out). For Mac users, it's Command+left and Command+right respectively.

As of version 0.9.0 you can also use <tt>Ctrl + &larr;</tt> and <tt>Ctrl + &rarr;</tt> to move a node in the desired direction (not only to change the side with respect to root, try it out; <tt>Ctrl + &uarr;</tt> and <tt>Ctrl + &darr;</tt> do work as well). For Mac users, it's <tt>Command+&larr;</tt> and <tt>Command+&rarr;</tt> respectively.

If you want to rearrange the nodes on your map using your mouse, you should ''not'' move the nodes around using the small "handle" appearing when your pointer hovers over the node, but you should grab the node itself, move it around and see how it throws a shadow upon the place it'll land once you release the mouse button.
 +
If you've already messed up your map, select the culprit nodes and reset their position using the menu <tt>Format &rarr; Reset Position</tt>.

The "handle" will only move around the node without changing its position in relation to the other nodes.
