  • Updated 3 years ago
I haven't use this feature till now. I created a series of properties in a topic as showed in the snapshot. I would like to use the same properties to other topics in the map but cannot resolve how to copy over to avoid creating the again and again. Any ideas how to resolve this?

The standard way to do this is....

Select the properties (maybe you need ctrl - enter to select them all)
Drag them to the desired topic and drop them

et voila

The MAP for MindManager add-in (Windows versions only) will let you do this quickly using the Property Clipboard function. http://www.mapformindmanager.com/map-commands/topic-properties/

It will also let you copy Properties with/without values and you can copy autocalc/formula property types independently from standard Properties.

Properties can also be pasted onto multiple selections letting you build out Map structures fast.

Regards
Nigel

Thank you Nigel. One question, is there a list of all commands&fuctions MAP2.0 can provide to MM. I would like to review them to consider get this add-in. I am also looking for a way to easily create some macro functions within a map like to be able to create a macro buttom to hide/unhide floating topics. Is there such functionality within MAP 2.0? I wrote the following post but I have not receive any comments yet from Mindjet developers:

There is not a short list, only the MAP for MindManager website but I like the idea of a list of additional functions and a brief outline of what they do.

I will look to incorporate such a page into the website as I think it will be a useful way for potential users to see if MAP contains something that addresses a current need.

MAP 2.1 released today and I think we are now at 39 additional functions for MindManager and it covers versions 14/15 and 16.

There is more planned for 2016 so stay tuned.
