Thank you for the questionaire (even though it's an old post).
Things I like/don't like:
I really like Xmind for its customizability (if that's even a word). Using keystrokes to quickly create a mindmap without touching a mouse is a marvel. Love it. Exports are OK, other programs have better quality exports ánd better looking styles. For me its a trade-off: keyboard or goodlooking.
But... after buying the software, I did feel some severe disappointment in the "pro" features. Export quality isn't better, the export to word doesn't work at all for my older Word version at work and the export templates are not customizable (and that's a MUST HAVE for me). Styles are extractable, yes, but you can't define them as a globally used theme. I don't understand the function of the themes that XMind supplies... you cant really build a theme with conditional formatting (also a must have).
The whole floating topic & relations thing is awfully buggy. Try and select multiple floating topics and move them a bit (all together). Positioning them is even more of a bother.
