Importing from other Mind Mapping programs and Biggerplate


In iMindMap 10 you can now import Mind Maps created with other software. This means that if your friends or colleagues have created a mind map in a different program, you can now open and edit it within iMindMap. Furthermore, if you’re switching from different Mind Mapping software you can continue to open and edit your old maps. The current supported file types are MindManager, MindMeister, MindGenius, FreeMind, NovaMind, iMindQ, XMind, iTHoughts and ConceptDraw. However, in other MindMapping programs you can try exporting the file as an OPML file and this could allow you to open it in iMindMap. 

 

 

 

It’s wonderfully simple to open other Mind Map file types, just go to file> open and choose the map you want to open. You will then be asked if you want to alter the layout. Once it’s been opened you can continue adding to your Mind Map with all the new features iMindMap has to offer.

 

 

Importing from Biggerplate 

 

You can also import maps from the Biggerplate library:

 

  1. Go to file
  2. Open
  3. Click on the bottom option for Biggerplate
  4. If you haven’t used it before you will need to link your iMindMap account (follow the instructions in the integrations guide)
  5. Type what type of Mind Map you are searching for.
  6. Once you’ve chosen a map, click on to open it in iMindMap
