helpful_tips_imageHey there everyone, I wanted to let you know that with the new year come fun new things to the Mindjet blog. One of them that I am excited to announce will be a new concerted effort to get you more tips and tricks.

I know that many of you know the product like the back of your hand, but every now and then, even we find ourselves staring blankly at the screen when we just learned a new trick or helpful method. And for those of you who are just picking up the powers of mapping, tips are always handy. This first tip of the new year actually comes to me via my cube neighbor Tammy, our Customer Marketing Manager. It has to do with the creation of custom map parts how you can use them for repetitive topics.

Steps to create your own custom map part:

  1. Highlight the topics you want to save as your map part.
  2. Drag that selection into the map parts section of the right hand ribbon.
  3. Once the map part is in the library, simply add it to the map at all the needed times.
  4. See the video below for an example.

I would love to hear back if this tip was helpful or if you have any other tips you would like to share leave a comment.

    Hi there,

    Any help anyone might offer re the following would be invaluable:

    I am using MindJet Manager 7 for Mac.

    Every time I press the “space bar” the program opens a new “Main Idea” box. If I want to have a space between words I have worked out that I can press “option” and then “space bar” but this is not practical.

    Also, the editing function within each “Main Idea” box seems to be playing up. I can only type from the last character in a box (ie I can not go through the text and edit – if I want to change what has been written I have to delete the entire box and start again).

    Thanks
    J

    This is great, I use map parts all the time. My only problem is I cannot figure out how to get the ribbon on the side of the page. I use the Beta of Mac, waiting for the full version. In the mean time, I jump through hoops to get my map part in place. Any help will be appreciated.

      Ona,

      Thanks for the comment, I have an answer for you. The video shows the Windows version. On the Mac you open the Library via the Window menu. Then select map parts from the drop down.

      Let me know if that helps.

      Garrett
