Here is a less hacky alternative to the answer given by Claudio: In conjunction with TikZ, I have almost stopped completely to use beamer's overlay commands (\visible<>, \only<>, and so on). Instead I always draw all elements, but hide them on the slides they should not appear. To specify the visibility, I use a visible on=<...> TikZ ...

The reason is that TeX doesn't hyphenate the first word in a paragraph. Inserting \hspace{0pt} for example would enable hyphenation, because then the word is not at the very beginning: child {node[concept] {\hspace{0pt}Unterschiedsschwelle}}

There are two and a half problems to solve here. 1. The Mathematical Problem We have to calculate the amount of rotation. The counterclockwise from argument is saved internally in \tikz@grow@circle@from@start. For every child the amount of /tikz/sibling angle get added (counterclockwise) or subtracted (clockwise). The number of the child is saved in ...

It is a complex problem and unfortunately it has a complex solution. Let's proceed. Why amplitude setting has no effect. This setting is only used for "manual" connections using style simple connection bar, and in this case you have to specify also the initial and final radii (see p.385 of the manual). When you use instead the mindmap style for the whole ...

TikZ provides a mindmapping library for that purpose. Examples: Computer science mindmap Scientific interactions by Andrei Sobolevski:

Manually One rather manual way would be to name the node with “Definition”, e.g. (def), and use normal nodes that get positioned right of def. I have created a style for these so called “non-concepts”: rectangle (default), text width=12em, execute at begin node=\footnotesize instead of font=\footnotesize (which does not perfectly combine with text width. ...

You can decide to scale nodes for example by setting: \tikzset{every node/.append style={scale=0.6}} and then locally redefine the scaling just in the node you are interested in. For example: \documentclass{article} \usepackage[T1]{fontenc} \usepackage{tikz} \usetikzlibrary{mindmap} \tikzset{level 1 concept/.append style={font=\sf, sibling ...

I'm not sure if this is what you want: \documentclass{article} \usepackage{tikz} \usetikzlibrary{mindmap,trees} \tikzset{concept/.append style={fill={none}}} \begin{document} \pagestyle{empty} \begin{tikzpicture} \path[mindmap,concept color=black,text=black] node[concept] {Computer Science} [clockwise from=0] child[concept ...

To shade a mindmap it is necessary to add a shading to the nodes. Let's start to add a shading style different for each level; the method used is simple: different concepts will have different ball colors. The code: \documentclass[a4paper,11pt]{article} \usepackage{tikz} \usetikzlibrary{mindmap} \tikzset{level 1 concept/.append style={font=\sf, sibling ...

Here is a solution taken from this message and adapted to your need (just 1 level, clockwise option and position of concepts angle 90, but you will see that I commented the code where there is something taken from your needs). Edit: seen now that I forgot the text=white; I will add a comment only in the place you should modify. \documentclass{beamer} ...

1) You need the arrows library (not explicitly mentioning all the libraries needed for the examples is very common in the manual): \documentclass{standalone} \usepackage{tikz} \usetikzlibrary{mindmap,arrows} \tikzset{ ld/.style={level distance=#1},lw/.style={line width=#1}, level 1/.style={ld=4.5mm, trunk, lw=1ex ,sibling angle=60}, level ...

Here is a manually adjusted example. Most of the complications came from supplying the mindmap option to the TikZ picture instead of a scope and also using \tiny a little improperly (inside the TikZ environment, TikZ rulaz!). \documentclass{article} \usepackage{tikz} ...

Along this site it is possible to find a lot of questions and answers related to scaling tikzpictures. Here I add some references: How to scale a tikzpicture to \textwidth How to scale a tikzpicture including texts? Correctly scaling a tikzpicture In particular: Beamer with Tikzpicture. How to change scale of picture and distance between lines of ...

More nodes are possible. You could change the sibling angle. Here is an example with 12 child nodes: \documentclass{article} \usepackage{tikz} \usetikzlibrary{mindmap} \begin{document} \begin{tikzpicture} \path[mindmap,concept color=blue,text=white, level 1 concept/.append style= {every child/.style={concept color=blue!70},sibling angle=-30}] ...

The style set angles for level is used to append the correct sibling distance for level #1. It can either used inside the level style or possibly in a .listed option. Usage should vary depending on the use-case in a real document. It may preferable to append set angles for level to grow cyclic or create a custom special grow cyclic that used this solution. ...

The reason that the transition colors are "wrong" is because you did not use the mindmap optional argument to the tikzpicture environment. Here is how I found the problem, by playing with a minimal example to try to understand what went wrong. The following example is based on the example in chapter 6 of the PGF/TikZ manual version 3.0.0. Without mindmap ...

This is the standard "Unknown Option" error of TikZ. The funny thing is that it does think the whole expression level 1 concept/.append style={level distance=130,sibling angle=30} is an option. Normally it should only complain about 'level 1 concept' is unknown, or actually not at all because only a style should be appended - the options should not yet be ...

With child [concept color=violet,visible on=<{3,4}>] {node [concept](c13){Child 1-3}} Your code runs fine.

The placement of tree nodes depends on the level distance key, the sibling distance key (both default: 15mm), the growth parent anchor key, and the usual anchor key of the children. The growth path depends on: - the placement of the nodes, - the parent anchor key, and - the child anchor key (both default: center). The child anchor is not important ...

The quickest fix is to put directly inside the node the \hyperlink, for example: node[concept] {\hyperlink{pract}{practical}} This won't alter the appearance of the concept style. The code: \documentclass{article} \usepackage[hidelinks]{hyperref} \usepackage{tikz} \usetikzlibrary{mindmap} \begin{document} \pagestyle{empty} \begin{tikzpicture} ...

In this solution, I use path picture instead of append after command. (Note: the hyperlink is always a rectangular area...) \documentclass{article} \usepackage[hidelinks]{hyperref} \usepackage{tikz} \usetikzlibrary{mindmap,trees,calc} \begin{document} \pagestyle{empty} \tikzset{ hyperlink node/.style={ postaction={ path picture={ ...

You could modify the style of every concept: \tikzset{every concept/.style={minimum size=2cm, text width=2cm}} Computer science mindmap example with several levels from the manual, with this change, resulting in the same size for all concept nodes, if the text doesn't blow it up: % Author: Till Tantau % Source: The PGF/TikZ manual ...


6

You could use a scope for the color, and opacity, and a bit manual positioning of the root nodes, such as: \documentclass[12pt]{article} \usepackage{tikz} \usetikzlibrary{mindmap} \begin{document} \begin{figure} \begin{tikzpicture}[small mindmap,concept color=blue!80] \node [concept] {Root concept 1} child[clockwise from=0] {node[concept] {child}} ...


6

You can set the node size by using the parameters minimum size=0pt, text width=<dimension> in place of your node width parameter and entering the desired value instead of <dimension>. Note that the actual size of the node will be larger than dimension by the values for inner sep and line width.

this solution with tikz trees might be helpful \documentclass{article} \usepackage{tikz} \usetikzlibrary{trees} \begin{document} \begin{tikzpicture}[edge from parent fork right,grow=right,level distance=3cm,level 1/.style={sibling distance=4cm}, level 2/.style={sibling distance=1cm}] \node[text width=1cm] {Idea General} child {node {Some idea}} child ...

Just nest further, add children after nodes. The tikzpicture canvas will be extended. Here's a small example with four levels. You can extend it, add and modify styles. \documentclass{article} \usepackage{tikz} \usetikzlibrary{mindmap} \begin{document} \begin{tikzpicture} \path[mindmap,concept color=blue,text=white, level 1 concept/.append style= ...

Section 39.4.3 of the Tikz manual helped me to get a clean solution in which two root nodes can be directly connected using a circle connection bar path: \documentclass[landscape]{article} \usepackage{tikz} \usetikzlibrary{mindmap} \pagestyle{empty} \begin{document} \begin{tikzpicture}[small mindmap, outer sep=0pt, text=black] \begin{scope}[concept ...

You can modify the attributes used for concepts using every concept (to affect all the concepts) root concept (to affect only the root concept), and level 1 concept, level 2 concept, ... , level 4 concept (to affect concepts on a per level basis). If you are going to change the concept shape, (to a rectangular shape, for example), then probably you will ...

You could hack your way out using nested \left\{ delimiters and tabular environments. This is a first approximation on which one could improve further. \documentclass{article} \newenvironment{subgroup} {$\left\{\tabular{l}} {\endtabular\right.$} \begin{document} Idea General \begin{subgroup} Idea Principal \begin{subgroup} Ideas ...
