Hello all, I am wondering if there is any way to export the hyperlinks associated with a topic, to a .csv file? I tried an export to Word and the links are there automatically, but not in a .csv file...
I am working with Mindjet 11.3. Any advice appreciated!

I don't think this is possible with the CSV export (even tried in MindManager 2017).

Actually if the table hierarchy is fairly flat then an export to Word will get you part of the way there. If you have multiple links under each topic you should end up with a Word document in which the links are separated by commas on a new line under the relevant topic, like the following:


LinkA, LinkB, LinkC, etc

You then have to devise a method within Word (or simply search and replace) to remove all the unnecessary paragraph returns to end up with:

Topic1, LinkA, LinkB, LinkC

Then you have to convert the Word document to CSV format - a quick Google search revealed several options to do this.

Hello Anouk,
Just to learn from you... Why do you want to export these hyperlinks to csv files?
What is your application? Is it something we all could use and gain the benefit?

If we know the reason why, it may help to find a solution.

I have been able to accomplish this by macro and use this methodology periodically.

Iterate tough the hyperlinks of interest and add them to an output variable. Copy the result to the clipboard. Copy and paste to notepad and Excel, and there you go ...

Here is a simple example 

Dim myLink As Hyperlink
Dim result As String

For Each myLink In myTopic.Hyperlinks
    result = result + myLink.Address + vbCrLf

Clipboard result
