Exporting mmap file to Word or PDF with same look and functionality

I am trying to export a mmap file into either a PDF or Word
document that keeps the same format and look of the mindmap and allows me to
access my file attachements.  When I
export to Word, it is displayed as an outline instead of a MindMap but it has links that work.  When I export to a PDF, the MindMap retains the same look but I'm unable to access my attached files.  Can you please help me figure out how to export the mindmap with the oringial look AND have file attachments that work?  Thanks

Holly, 

Thank you for your post. When exporting to Mindjet Viewer Files in PDF or SWF format, most formatting is preserved but there are some limitations. Attachments are not carried over to Viewer Files and Local Hyperlinks are also not supported. 

One suggestion is to upload your attachments to your own Web Server, Dropbox or other cloud storage solutions and then add Topic Hyperlinks pointing to the files. From there, you can export your Map to a Mindjet Viewer File and the links will be clickable.

The full version of Adobe Acrobat has a facility to convert PDF documents to Word, though obviously that can be expensive unless you can bundle it as part of a subscription to other Adobe products. In practice I find that while converted documents generally look OK, sometimes heavily-formatted documents especially those with lots of images can produce some peculiarities. The resulting documents can also be a pain to edit as the conversion usually doesn't generate the default Word heading and paragraph styles.
