Google Search Plus
MindManager is often used for research and collating information or knowledge on specific subjects. Until May 2016 it was possible to initiate a Google Search within MindManager and have the results populated as Topics within your current Map.
The capability has now stopped working due to changes in the Google Search API and Mindjet have said that they will not be issuing any patches for prior version (this capability has been around since MindManager 8). They have further stated that it will not be included in the soon to be released MindManager 2017.
Google Search Plus replaces the capability while also adding some improvements and additional features.
Note: You will need to set up a Google Search API Key and a Google Custom Search Engine to use this capability. This is an easy process and our full help guide explains how to do this.
When activated from either the MAP ribbon menu or the MAP Task Pane you will see the Google Search Plus dialog slide into view.

Linked Map Roll Up
Many MindManager users create dashboards made up of multiple Maps Hyperlinked to each other so they can be easily navigated.
If you want to send the Dashboard to another user you can use the Pack and Go function to include all the files but there is no way to include all the Maps into a single file. Linked Map Roll Up now enables you to do this.
Linked Map Roll Up analyses a Dashboard Map for any linked Maps and converts them to Attachments. After the process completes, any linked Maps are returned to their original state so they maintain their original link structure.
You do need to make sure that you only use this feature on Map structures where Maps are not linked back on themselves (reciprocal links) or you can get an unstable result or possible loop.
A progress dialog displays while the conversion takes place.
Once the process completes, the confirmation dialog will display.
The Hyperlinked Maps will be added/converted to Attachments. Currently, existing Hyper-links remain on the Map as shown.
MindManager 2017 recently introduced the ability to export Maps as a single HTML5 file which can be opened with most modern browsers. This enables you to easily share our Maps with others while retaining the look and feel of the original Map and still enabling navigation.
Linked Map Roll Up enables you to prepare a single Dashboard Map so that once exported to the new HTML5 format, any linked Maps will be available through attachments in the browser viewer. This enables your readers to navigate and view the other connected Maps just as you do on your local system.
