My topics and comments in the Mindjet Community

One day I thought I would analyse what subjects I had been commenting on and initiating in the Mindjet Community.  I have dragged and dropped 120 of them on to this map.  Some repeat frequently e.g. about licenses on more than one PC or Mac. Many are unique. Some require a common answer e.g. a hyperlink to the Mindjet Download Archive and the Technical Support page.

I have grouped the threads. Publishing, Editing, Licensing and User Interface have the most threads.  But I have not attempted to answer many of the Mobile and Connect issues except where I have the same problem, they are for Mindjet to resolve.

Perhaps a quick review by you will spot a bug you have as well or maybe there is a solution to something that has blocked your use of Mindjet’s products.

I have published in three formats:

  • Immediately below – The Flash Viewer – which will probably take a while to load.
  • Then further down, you can download the map.
  • And finally a clickable text outline. Produced with a customised web export which you can scroll down (which means the search engines will know something about the threads I have been commenting on 🙂 )

    Hi, Andrew

    The map under the hyperlink to download it is not a map! (is not really a .mmap file)

  2. Andrew Wilcox says:

    Sergio, Thanks for the feedback. My apologies, I got the capitalisation wrong on part of the link.

    Should be working now.


  3. Sergio says:

    Ok, now it’s working!

  4. Andrew Wilcox says:

    Phew! Amended whilst on a slow train in Wiltshire.

  5. Miguel says:


    I have a mindmanager map with a background image but when i export the file to mindjet viewer, the background image doesn´t appear. What can i do to fix it?

    Thank you


  6. Andrew Wilcox says:

    Hi Miguel

    There is nothing you can do about it. The Mindjet Flash (PDF) Viewer does not support all the attributes and styles you have in the desktop application application. For example background images, images in Topic Notes …

    I suggest you raise it as an idea in the Mindjet Community.

    The clickable image map web export does support the background image and replicates the style of the map.
