How do I make changes that are made to the map "02_01_map.mmap" from the map "02_00_map.mmap" appear in the map "02_00_map.mmap"?

Situation:
"02_00_map.mmap" - the central map
"02_01_map.mmap" - single card

"02_01_map.mmap" is embedded in "02_00_map.mmap"

If I am "02_00_map.mmap" and make changes to the "02_01_map.mmap" map, the changes are not displayed in the "02_01_map.mmap" map.
I need to go to the card "02_01_map.mmap" and make changes there.

I assume you have tried the Map RollUp feature you find under the Advanced tab?

I do not quite understand your question.
To embed the map, I used the command - see figure

Did I understand your question correctly?

If I understand you correctly, you have Map 1 and Map 2.

In Map 1 you have inserted a Map Roll-up link to Map 2.

If your question is "can I make any changes I make to Map 2 appear in the Roll-up link in Map 1?" the answer is yes but this is not automatic. You have to refresh the link to Map 2 by right clicking on the Map Roll-up icon in Map 1 and selecting Refresh Map Roll-up from the menu. Any changes you made and saved in Map 2 should then appear in Map 1.

If your question is "can I make changes to Map 2 by editing the Map Roll-up in Map 1?" the answer is no. Map Roll-ups are a one-way link only. When it is refreshed a Map Roll-up will display any changes made in the source map but changes made to the Map Roll-up will not change the source map.

You're right
I meant OPTION 2.

Question
There are other ways to perform the following functions:
    - that I could insert "map  2" in "map 1";
    - when I am in "map 1", I can collapse and expand "map 2" (or see the structure of "map 2");
    - when I am in "map 1", it was possible to make changes to "map 2" and they were displayed in "map 2";

If Alex is correct, there is an excellent solution for your purpose inside the MAP-addin from Olympic-limited

Another Addin with even more options is Topic Tracker addin, the benefit is that you can tell what the source is and where the results should be shown.

Yes - I missed the video link on the original post. It seems from that Ivan wants to use the second approach. Topic Tracker might be the best bet for this.

"Topic Tracker" I'm still studying.

But I think I prefer "MutiMaps".
Watch the video from 1:45 - Link

Question.
Is there anything similar and free?
Or is it possible to do something like this with the help of Maksroso?
Or a macro is difficult?

Hi Ivan,

In answer to your question, when I am in "map 1", it was possible to make changes to "map 2" and they were displayed in "map 2", as you have discovered, you can't do this directly with Map Roll-up.

As indicated earlier you will need either an add-in like Multi-Maps or, possibly, a macro but there might be a simpler (and cheaper) way to simulate this. I suggest you try this: 

  1. Set up the Map Roll-up of Map 2 within Map 1;
  2. Go to Map 2 and create a link from the Central Topic to the rolled-up topic in Map 1;
  3. Now when you are in Map 1 and you want to change the structure of Map 2, click on the link icon on the right of the Map 2 rolled-up topic. This will take you to MAP 2;
  4. After you have finished editing Map 2, click on the link icon to go back to the rolled-up topic in Map 1;
  5. Right click on the Map Roll-up icon and select Refresh Map Roll-up to see the changes you made in Map 2 reflected in Map 1.

I've only tried this briefly but it seems to work. I would suggest trialling it on a small map before using it for anything major and I would try to avoid anything too complex like creating multiple loops.
