New version of FreeMind – wonderful

FreeMind was updated last month with a load of new features. From the announcement:

  • Undo
  • Many new exports and imports (among others: jpeg, png, new html exports, PDF, MindManager 5)
  • new layout and movable nodes (thanks to Dimitri)
  • Preferences dialog
  • new menu structure
  • new local hyperlinks

The only thing I like less is that folded nodes have a small circle at the end of the node instead of a bubble. Everything else looks pretty good – including the very neat “Moveable Nodes” feature.

Still one of my favourite tools and one I wish I used more often.

  1. I have become adicted to FreeMind. Probably have about 100 mind maps already. I use it to keep a record of all my ebook/software purchases, process notes on how a certain process is accomplished, etc. And I even have a mind map that points to all of my other mind maps.
    There is one item I’m having problems with and wish someone could assist me. When I create hyperlinks (<ctrl> K) it appears to be okay, but when I click on the arrow to activate the hyperlink, it doesn’t go any place.
    Any suggestions?

    I like your “CAPTCHA-line” math question… how did you impliment it?

  2. Thanks for the comments.
    If hyperlinks aren’t working the first thing I’d check is what browser is called by Freemind. For Freemind 0.8.0 under Tools->Preferences select the HTML ‘tab’ and check your browser settings.
    The CAPTCHA math question is, AFAIK, a WebRoller feature.

    When I export to XHTML, I do not get the fold/unfold capacity, did you have to manually copy the freemind java applet inside your web directory?
    Also, do you have a site with freemind linking map to other maps? I would like to see this, before I start doing it myself
    Thanks you

    It appears as hyperlinks does not work if there is a space in the filename, I replaced all spaces in filenames that I linked to with an underline and then it worked
