Create new Smart Map Part

is there ANY mechanism for creating new Smart Web Parts, other than the duplication and modification of an existing one.. Of which there are few to begin with.

Beyond that, there seems to be little configuration of existing map parts, like the File Explorer map part. There doesn't seem to be a way to only pick one file, not the All Files, or entire Folder alternatives.

Is there something that I am missing here on either front?

If you want to add a map part, just select the topic you want to become a map part and then click on the 'Add Selected Topic(s)' link on the left side of your screen in the  Map Parts sidebar pane (see screenshot)




Are you able to achieve this?


If you want to link to one file, the best way would be to just drag and drop this file onto the map and then choose the option to create a hyperlink to the file?

Smart Map Parts can either have a suite of macros behind them, or registered events handled by an add-in. The macro-dependent versions are based on a Generic Smart Map Part. The scripts for the File Explorer are in Program Files\Mindjet\MindManager\Generic Smart Map Part\File Explorer\ENU\Scripts. I think there are also some registry keys required to connect a map part with its scripts. There was once some documentation on developing Smart Map Parts, but it was never integrated into the documentation currently in the MDN. I will see if I can find it.

Update: ah, the wonder of the Internet. MindManager 7 developer documentation is still on line and is probably still valid:
