Can you convert a "concepts" diagram to a mindmap?

After upgrading MindManager I was curious to find the "Concepts" type. Seemed like a mindmap with more control over the layout etc (yes, I know, I was wrong). After some time capturing my ideas I realized it was quite restrictive and wanted to go back to a regular mindmap (radial). However... I'm unable to find any way to go from one to another... am I missing something? 

Not looking for a perfect conversion, just as much time saving on input as possible. I tried to do an export/import but can't seem to find any matching vehicle to do this.

Thanks in advance for any pointer.

PS: MindManager Version 12.1.191 macOS Catalina

Hi DL,

There is currently no way to automatically do this. Concept maps use relationships to connect all the topics and standard maps use a different type of connector that is less flexible. Since you can have any number of relationships in a concept map and standard maps can only have one connection to a parent we don't have a way to convert them.
