Inspiration 10: New Updates

Calling all Inspiration 10 and Inspiration RD users! There is an exciting update coming to you November 1st. Here is what you can expect from Inspiration 10.1...

Citation Tool and Bibliography Generator

Inspiration 10's new Citation tool allows users to add multiple references to symbols and branches on a visual map, along with the relevant hyperlink for each. Inspiration 10 will then automatically collect and alphabetically organise all the citations into a dedicated Bibliography section within the Outline View. Users can then preview before exporting.

Sync Tool Added to Map View

Previously only in Diagram View, the Sync tool will match the way you order your visual view to the Outline View. Without using this tool, the outline will be organised in the order you enter and link ideas. However, you may rearrange your map and want your outline to reflect your order of thinking. Using the Sync tool between Map and Outline View means first-level topics will be organised following a clockwise order, with further subtopics ordered top to bottom.

Transfer Tool: Copy to Clipboard

The new copy to clipboard option allows diagrams and outlines to be quickly pasted into apps, such as Google Docs and Microsoft OneNote, using the Transfer tool - the same way users could always transfer their Inspiration files into a Word document.

Export Style Headings

Style headings will apply to Inspiration 10 outlines when they are transferred to Word or copied to clipboard. This means the document works a lot like Outline View, as topic content can be minimised to allow users to focus on a particular section. Style headings also mean screen readers recognise headings and body text.

Work Focused Templates

50 work focused templates will be made available to open in Inspiration 10 from the Templates library. As well as being suitable for the workplace, many students will find relevant templates to subjects such as business and marketing.

So, how can you update?

Existing Inspiration 10 users will be able to upgrade to this version for free, as well as any version 9 users who received their Inspiration licence in or after January 2020. Existing users will be prompted to download the latest version via email on 1st November 2021. At the same time as the Windows release, these features will also appear in our cloud solution for Macs and Chromebooks - Inspiration RD.
