Have you guys found a solution yet? I recently started using MindManager and I'm loving it. Would love to integrate it with a note taking app. What note taking app would work best with Mind Manager? Evernote, OneNote? There seems to be no direct plug-ins and I find hyperlinks to be inefficient. My choice of note-taking app would also determine my to-do app. (Note that I also like to use Outlook) Please help!

I have managed to find what seems to be a hyperlink generating connection to OneNote:

I use mm for todo list and note taking as well as evernote.
MM has 5 major topics:
Q0, Q1, Q2, Q3 or Q1, Q2, Q3, Q4  all based on the quardrand approach
I also have a Done topic.
Move done items to the Done topic and add a timestamp in the topic use ctrl-shift-D for the timestamp.I also make extensive use of the note feature for the topics.
Find MM better than all of the others

I suspect addons might be an enhancement but I live in Mindmap and always have tod--Q4 open.
Also have my TodoDashboard and calender maps open as well as bobs calendar
Bottom line is the 3 maps are always open and suite my needs perfectly.

In the latest version of MindManager Enterprise, it's possible to send topics and entire maps to over 500 different online applications including OneNote and Evernote.

A couple of comments:

I think that note taking is a 'core-competency' for mind mapping and MIndManager.  Each topic can be elaborated with sub-topics, each sub-topic with sub-sub-topics and so on.  Attach notes, links, graphics, pictures, video...anything you want to your map.  Personally I can't see the benefit of linking to OneNote or Evernote unless you are saving your maps on these sites?  What am I missing? 

See Jamie Nast's Idea Mapping site for lots of examples of note taking using pencil and paper...very basic.

By the way Bob Levy mentioned Covey's Quadrant approach and there is a terrific map on our Mapsforthat site.  You do have to register but there is no cost associated with this site.
