Rock the Stage

Pitch Mode


Pitch Mode took its debut last year, and everyone loves it. We saw YouTuber using it to do presentation for followers, and there are plenty of requested features on the wish list.

Introducing Panel for pitch mode, also known as, pitch panel, offering more customizations for every topic.

What’s New in Pitch Mode

1. More Options for Slide

Last year, we paused on every topic, and some users ask to skip some topics to keep the same pace with their speech. In the latest version, we skip some slides automatically, while you can find more customizations.

Choose a topic, open Pitch Panel, and there you go.


Pitch Mode generates slide layout based on your content, and you can change it in the drop-down menu. If a topic contains an image, illustration, or sticker, image position also gives you enough space to customize it.


2. Delivery & Layout

Decide how to demonstrate the content in your way.

Delivery offers 3 ways to present subtopics of a current topic.

One by One - Drill in: One subtopic at a time, and drill in. You can elaborate more details for each topic.

One by One : A way to drill in your topic. You can elaborate more details for each topic.

All at Once: A general view of the subtopics, giving a general view of today’s speech and warm up the stage before officially get started.


Layout provides 3 common ways for the subtopics: Brace List, Bullet List, and Lyrics (scroll down subtopics vertically).


Combine delivery and layout, and you can always find an appropriate way for different parts of your speech.

3. Display in Pitch Mode

If you are not sure for the current effect after changing, you can check Display in Pitch Mode which is the small window in the pitch panel for a real-time preview. No need to play the slides back and forth for a final check.


Like A Cherry on Top

Illustrations & Stickers


Who can say no to these lovely chums? Add brand-new illustrations to your mind map and make it illustrative and attractive. Use a bit of help with sticker which doesn’t steal the attention, but grabs the information.


There are pretty much small changes and updates in this version because we know every detail matters. We hope you enjoy this version, and keep XMind as your companion in work, study, and life. Happy mind mapping 😊
