Today is not my day for searching with the Google search map part. Now it has stopped working completely. I've quit and restarted MM but to no avail. Any suggestions?

Now I'm totally mystified - I can't get the Google search map part to work on either of my computers (one running Win7, the other Win8), across both MM14 and MJ11. Everything else seems OK.

What's weird is that this started gradually. On my large map it started returning "No matches found" on several searches but still worked on others, which was odd, then it stopped working altogether. Now even simple searches (like "cat"or "dog") in maps with only one or two topics don't return any results.

Has this happened to anyone else?

Hi Alex,

I was not able to reproduce this issue on several Maps. Are you still experiencing these issues and have you tried to repair or re-install the application?

Hi Marian,

Yes I'm still experiencing these problems but I haven't tried to repair or reinstall as it's affecting all our computers across two versions of MindManager, so I didn't think there was any point in doing so.

Google search map functionality has reappeared, but still fails after four or five searches are updated in a map with around 50 searches stored. After closing the map (and MindManager) it can then be refreshed for another four or five searches before it stops again.

(update: I'm now down to two searches at a time).

This suggests that there is an upper limit to either the number of saved or active searches in a map. I'd like some confirmation if this is the case, because then I can at least work around it. Also when I open a map in which searches have been saved I have to add a new search in order to activate the stored searches which initially appear to be static. Is this normal behaviour?
