How can I easily switch between linked maps?

I created a map and inserted some linked maps (via context menu - Send Topic(s) to New linke map). What I want to do is, to switch easily between these maps. I have the links, however, when jumping back from a linked map to the main one I always get the message that the map is already open and has to be re-opened in read-only mode. That is quite annoying having then each map opened twice - one "normal and one in read-only.

Are you using multiple versions of MindManager on your system? Are these maps stored on your system or in the cloud?

Finally, I found the reason why the linked maps opened in read-only. My maps are stored on a server and I do not know exactly how this can happen but the path is sometimes slightly different. So, sometimes starts with the letter of the drive and sometimes with the server prefix. I saw this in the history of opened files. I'm sorry for taking up your time, but I guess that is not directly related to MindManager. Obviously MindManager just did not recognize that it was the same file because it just checks the path. Thank you for your help!
