Text Import for Mind Maps and Sticky Notes

To automatically turn text into a mind map or a stack of cards, copy the text and paste it into Whimsical. Make sure you've selected the respective board type (Mind Map or Sticky Notes).

For a Mind Map:

  • Copy a list from a notepad, or even a Whimsical doc!
  • Pick the add a Mind Map option.
  • Press ESC or click off the text input. Select that main node and hit paste!
  • Reverse the steps to export a Mind Map as a list.

The same process works for importing Sticky Notes:

  • Copy a list, or a set of cells. 
  • Make sure you are in Sticky Notes mode.
  • Click the canvas and paste to get a line of notes. 
  • Or, add a stack using and select the stack before pasting to add the notes to it!
