It didn't work for me. I thought I could freely adjust the size of the nodes. I couldn't. Now I need to look for a Graph Builder software that let me adjust the size of the nodes. Nuclino seems like it could just do it. I have to search for software with "World Building" capabilities too so I can create an entire Map or World of knowledge with regions in SIZE
Interesting concept of a software. The free version comes with a lot of functionality. It's definitely WAY BETTER than ANKI. Still can't paste from other programs. Image Occlusion Functionality (an interesting one) disabled for the free version. I should look for alternatives to Anki and this software that make it easy to Occlude Images and generate flashcards on the go
Similar to a board of index cards or post-it notes, it allows you to write in and move around small individual, expandable notes set out in columns. Then you can export that into a manuscript.
This program uses index cards to organise information, especially for writers. A noteable feature is the ability to nest index cards inside other index cards.
Scapple is an easy-to-use tool for getting ideas down as quickly as possible and making connections between them. It isn’t exactly mind-mapping software—it’s more like a freeform text editor that allows you to make notes anywhere on the page and to connect them using straight lines or arrows. If you’ve ever scribbled down ideas all over a piece of paper and drawn lines between related thoughts, then you already know what Scapple does.
Scapple doesn’t force you to make connections, and it doesn’t expect you to start out with one central idea off of which everything else is branched. There’s no built-in hierarchy at all, in fact—in Scapple, every note is equal, so you can connect them however you like. The idea behind Scapple is simple: when you are roughing out ideas, you need complete freedom to experiment with how those ideas best fit together.
Creating notes is as easy as double-clicking anywhere on the canvas and then typing; making connections between ideas is as painless as dragging and dropping one note onto another. And unlike paper, you can move notes around and never run out of space.
FEATURES • Simple—and fun—to use • Completely freeform • Write notes anywhere on the virtual paper • Connect notes using drag and drop • Move and arrange notes easily • Create background shapes to group notes • Customise the appearance of notes including font style, colours and a choice of border styles • Stack notes in columns of related ideas • MathType support • Full screen mode (Lion and above) • iCloud support (10.8 and above) • Export to popular formats or print your ideas • Easily drag notes into Scrivener for further development
A new medium for your ideas—augment your thinking with a text editor designed for structuring lists. Side-by-side views allow 3 modes of thinking.
Indigrid lets you list and group pieces of text in a hierarchical tree structure: so that you can organize big networks of ideas and navigate them—because the emphasis is on manipulating the ideas, instead of designing a document.
It is like a text editor for mind mapping, with more emphasis on text editing and no graphics.

Got a great idea but don't know where it fits? Write when inspiration strikes and find its place later. Grow your manuscript organically, idea by idea.
SEE THE FOREST OR THE TREE Whether you plan or plunge, Scrivener works your way: hammer out every last detail before typing a word, or carve out a draft and restructure later.

So working with an overview of your manuscript is only ever a click away, and turning Chapter Four into Chapter One is as simple as drag and drop.
