Mind map tools, arrows, outlined text boxes

I am a neurophysiologist and am constantly designing experiments. There are many moving parts and it helps to be able to draw flow charts and mind maps for each experimental design. I know many people have requested arrows, and I just want to ask that in addition to arrows we get dynamic colored text boxes (squares would be fine if they could remain editable in brain-map mode) so that I don't have to lasso things to move them and change how they connect. And PLEASE LOTS of color options and thicknesses with these!!

        I think some of the mind mapping tools will export your mind map as a PDF and then you could add it to your notebook.

        Never. Use a "mindmap" App instead.
        Besides and with my full respect: Mindmapping is overrated.

        Also it'd be awfully nice if we'd be able to make vector-shapes ourselves, e.g. in Affinity Designer :-)

        Fully agree with Jessie, using diagrams (engineering, modeling for ex.) within handwritten text require predefined shapes. For example, See how powerpoint implements this in its Insert/Shapes drop down menu under shapes.

        If you want mind maps, use a mind mapping tool like iThoughts. Please don't expect Goodnotes to do everything. It's beauty is in its minimalism.
