# change node level tikz mindmap

I would like to change the level of a specific node in a tikz mindmap, with something like node[level=1], [style=level 1/.style], or something like the skip level style. I would like to avoid making an overlapping tree like in the scientific interactions example.

    \documentclass{standalone}
\usepackage{tikz}
\usetikzlibrary[mindmap]

\begin{document}

\begin{tikzpicture}[mindmap,every node/.style=concept,text=white]
\node {root}
child {node {level 1 node}
child {node {level 2 node}
child[concept color=blue] {node {level 1 node}}
child {node {level 3 node}}
}
}
;
\end{tikzpicture}
\end{document}


Any suggestions? Thanks in advance :)

• I don't think this is possible. In the case of a more complicated tree, how would TikZ decide to which node the child is to be attached? – Paul Gessler Mar 31 '14 at 1:47
• In this case the node would still be a "level 3", although it's appearance would be that of a "level 2". A child to this node would then be a "level 4", so it would be necessary to change the style for each node in this branch. Actually what would be nice would be to be able to create a "parent" the same way we create a "child"... – Joe H. Apr 1 '14 at 6:28
