A Map Index to index linked maps.

  • Problem
  • Updated 4 years ago
The improved Map Index function which includes Elements will be very useful in large maps but I tend to use many smaller linked maps. I don' t think it works across the "array". You can use the Linked Maps > Combine All to create the "Indexable View" but you would then have to find the original map for any editing.

Would any one else like an extension to the Map Index which works across linked maps?

Hello Andrew

This is what ResultsManager v3 does.

Yes Andrew, it will be very useful and it would be consistent with In User Interface.
I use a lot ResultsManager. It is a very powerful tool but "the Map Index which works across linked maps" would cover all markers (ResultsManager does not consider all markers).

Dear Sirs,

I have 2 great doubts.

the first:

Generate 3 map projects.


And a central project.mmap.

In project design X has X users.

In the central project I want LINKo only the TOPICOS I want, example: (ACTION) of each x.mmap project above for the central project dynamically.

When I open the central project, I have TOPIC
PROJECTS 2017, when I open.

Action project 1 linked with topic (Action) project1.mmap
Action project 2 linked with topic (Action) project2.mmap
Action project 3 linked with topic (Action) proyecto3.mmap

But by clicking and tinkering on the toptic action of project 1 it does not sync.

And if I or HE edit, how do you sync?
I'd like to do that. but I can not.

I used MAPS PARTS (it looks like) I thought it worked, but it's static. When you change the originating part, the maps parts (add select topics) are not changed, they are static of the day that was added.

How to make dynamic (add selected topic) update every time the original topic is updated?

Bear in mind that Map RollUp is not available in MM vs 14, so you will have to upgrade
