How are people using idea boxes?

Looking for good practice and tips on using the idea box, please.

Same here, I’ve tried putting it into my workflow but it seems cumbersome. Focusing on specific areas seems to work just fine. Some of my maps are getting a bit unwieldy and maybe that is what the idea box is supposed to help with but like some of the features in marginnote the purpose is vague or unclear.

l’m finding much more use for it now with the scribble feature. In fact, it’s opened up a whole new way of using Marginnote for me: I can use child mindmaps (in the iPad version) to get my ideas straight and use the main mindmap for the key ideas.
