    I agree w/ all the other negative comments about this add on ON TOP OF the fact that MM 8 freezes my computer whenever I right click on a topic. I have crash reports for every day since i bought it 8 months ago w/ no help from MJ and no refund. Interesting that MJ says their product has a “lackluster” look before this add on and then charge for it.

    @ITIL and @Stephan: You’re welcome!

    @Matthew: We’re working on enhancing the set of visuals available for Mac.

    @Anon: Thank you for your feedback, and we’ll be sure to pass on the feedback to the team.

    @Jim: Not including the price upfront was an oversight on our part — apologies for that. The price of the Image Library Add-In is $29, 29 Euros, 25 Pounds Sterling, and 3,900 Yen.

    One last point & it’s a comparison. Broderbund’s ClickArt (& there’s others available too) offers 400,000 premium images for $9.99. You’re offering 300 for $30.
    That $.10 per image seems like an awfully large profit margin. Again I strongly suggest a goodwill gesture on MindJet part by giving this away to their valued customers who’ve purchased MM, or maybe have purchased at least 2 versions.

    Why is it that I have to click through three screens to discover the pricing for this add on. I realize that seems to be typical web practice. Here is my typical web response. If you feel compelled to hide the price from me, I feel compelled to ignore your offer regardless of its potential value to me. Petty? Probably. But I can hope that eventually we will train the web away from stupid sales tactics.

    Hi Phil,

    I can remember talking with you about the clipart issue during GTD summit. So Thank you Phil for the good news :-)

    Addendum to my #3.
    I apologize in the pricing as that was for the JVCGantt bundle. That said the MM8 standalone prices are still steep enough to warrant these images to be included free of charge since the original image library has not been improved since v5. Or at least not so its noticeable.

    So MindJet would have us believe that these extra images should not have been part of the new feature set of version 8. Even w/ a hefty $249 upgrade price. Or brand new price of $399. In this economy as many businesses are trying to entice customers with giveaways, MindJet wants us to shell out yet another $30. Let me see if I can find the right image add-in for this topic [censored.jpg].

    It says the add-in is only compatible with Windows versions of MindManager. What about those of using Mac versions of MindManager?
