    Here’s what to do when your MindManager Expert Tracker starts to look like the above example, and you’re looking for a more efficient way to add, update, and access the influencers in your field (and beyond).

When this happens, it’s time to take advantage of MindManager’s ability to easily subdivide your Expert Tracker into a series of…

    The four breakout rooms were set with 75 chairs each at the PMI Annual Conference outside of Omaha, NE this past Monday. In my AM Memory session we had to pull in extra chairs to accommodate the crowd. I had 104 of the 289 conference attendees learning to memorize 20 items in order, learn to remember names & faces, and fly through their memory test of 30 images successfully. In the afternoon Idea Mapping breakout we got a bit of a late start as we had to accommodate 140 with standing room only. Brought a case of Idea Mapping books and sold out! Great time was had by all!

    When selecting items from the Library you often have to scroll down to see all the choices of images, icons, background images and shapes available to you. Just stretch the viewing pane to see more. You can drag the top up and the left hand side out. The result is in most cases you can see all the items available in that group. Just place your mouse on the pane edge and when the cursor changes to the double arrows and vertical lines, drag the edge in the required direction.

The current exports to PowerPoint do not show off your hard work of laying out the map and formatting it.  They transfer the topic text to bullet points or PowerPoint objects (bullet points in blocks).  My recommendation has always been for simple maps to export the image then insert and link to a slide.  For more complex maps either use screen grabbers to capture…

    It’s that time of year again for the new XMind! Yes, we name it XMind 6, which will be the next major release of XMind. In this new version, we’ll bring eight big new features and a dozen significant improvements, along with most of known bugs fixed. Why do we name the next big release XMind 6? Let’s look back to our history. In 2007, we released our first 2 versions XMind 2007 (v1.0) and XMind 2008 (v2.0). In later 2008, we opened most of the source code and enter XMind 3.x times. In the next several years, we kept the version number 3.x, and made some minor updates. The 4th…

    XMind has just been rated as the best brainstorming and mind-mapping tech tool on Lifehack, one of the premier productivity and lifestyle blogs on the web. And they says, “In order to be able to see a relationship between various ideas and information, we use mind mapping. This includes gathering thoughts, coming up with new ideas, project planning, and more to solve problems or have novel ideas.” From the very beginning, we wish to design a product to clarify thinking, organize information and get works done. Just like what Lifehack says, “XMind is an open source tool that…

    Have you become lost in Facebook? I have. So I started mapping it out. I have been using Facebook to advertise another venture and I needed to be more careful with my postings. This is the summary map. Click it to see the detail. Facebook Overview Summary It’s work in progress. There is more to understand on the left hand side. What is missing? What doesn’t make sense?

    When selecting items from the Library you often have to scroll down to see all the choices of images, icons, background images and shapes available to you. Just stretch the viewing pane to see more. You can drag the top up and the left hand side out. The result is in most cases you can see all the items available in that group. Just place your mouse on the pane edge and when the cursor changes to the double arrows and vertical lines, drag the edge in the required direction.

    Windows has a set of variables which work wherever Windows is installed. Maybe you have booted from a USB drive or decided your home drive should be Z:. You can use these variables in MindManager hyperlinks. For example: “%windir%\System32\calc.exe” as an absolute link will start an instance of the Calculator (It may not be in the foreground). “%UserProfile%\AppData\Local\Mindjet\MindManager\14\Library\ENU\” will open your library folder. You need to use the Open outside MindManager option or press Ctrl when you click the hyperlink on the map. Here are some more…

  • MindManager and PowerPoint Brainwave

    Presentation Web Export Template I just had a moment of inspiration when answering a question about exporting to PowerPoint in the Mindjet Community.  There has never been a easy way to transfer your maps to PowerPoint. The current exports to PowerPoint do not show off your hard work of laying out the map and formatting it.  They transfer the topic text to bullet points or PowerPoint objects (bullet points in blocks).  My recommendation has always been for simple maps to export the image then insert and link to a slide.  For more complex maps either use screen grabbers to capture…
