Revamped Microsoft Word export

We recently updated our Microsoft Word (DOCX) export. Please see below how it works.

1. The central topic becomes the title of the exported document and will appear at the top with a bigger font size. Your main topics and subtopics will be listed in a headings hierarchy up until the 4th level. After the 4th level, all the subtopics will be listed as normal text with indentation.
Notes are exported exactly as they are in the mind map (keeping their stylings such as bulleting, numbering, font size, and color).



2. Comments will appear on the right side of the document, in a column, each comment connected to its topic with a dotted line. The comments will also display the initials of the person who added it and the date it was added.

Task Mind Maps will have their task specifications (start date/end date, priority, duration and assignee) exported as a table right under the task’s title:




3. The new export will enable you to create a table of contents. This is specificalhere onl if you are writing an essay, article or book, and you want you and/or your readers to navigate easily through your work. You can read more here on how to create such a table of contents.


Please give this new functionality a try and let us know what you think in the comments section below.

Keep it smart, simple and creative!

Spell checker now working on the Desktop

Let’s start Monday with some good news! Our Desktop version now has a spell checking functionality available in the following languages: English, German, Spanish, French, Italian, Russian, Norwegian, Danish, Swedish, Dutch and Portuguese.
The spell checker becomes active when you are editing the topic, and all you need to do is right click on the word to see the spelling suggestions:

By going to the License Info icon (at the bottom of the left toolbar in your Dashboard), then to Options, you can set a custom language for the spell checking functionality, different from the language of the application:

Redesigned Share Panel

We’re excited to announce that our new and refreshed Share panel is now online.
Our goal with this newly designed sharing functionality was to offer the easiest experience you can get when it comes to sharing your work with others. We hope you’ll find the new design to be uncluttered and more user-friendly.

So, what’s new? The first change you’ll notice when you open the Share panel is that we included the password protection right there, in the top left side. Simply click on Password, then set a password for your map.

By clicking on More you will get the link to Embed the map, use it as RSS or HTML, etc.

Link sharing was simplified too, you have all the options in one page: you can make your mind map public and viewable for everyone on the internet, viewable only for those who have the link, or guest editable.

You can still find the standard option to invite someone to edit your mind map, you just need to type in the email address and click on ‘Send’. The person will receive an email invitation to edit your mind map. If he doesn’t have a Mindomo account, he/she will be redirected to our Sign up page.

We’d love if after you try it, you tell us what you think.

Keep it smart, simple and creative!
