Not quite sure what you mean here - could you post a screenshot? MindManager 2018 exports more than two levels of subtopics to a CSV file, and I'm pretty sure MM 15 did as well.

It looks like you are trying to export a concept map or flow chart rather than a "traditional" hierarchical map. If so, these maps are made up of floating topics and MindManager can't establish what the actual hierarchy is when the map is exported as a CSV.

hmm do you know of any way around it?
Perhaps it is possible to convert a concept map/flow chart to a "traditional hierarchial map?

Unfortunately I don't think it is possible to do this easily.

It is possible to get the MindManager WordX2 add-in to export floating topics to a Word document as an appendix, but there is lot of work involved. To do this you have to manually apply the relevant Word paragraph styles to the topics in MindManager before starting the export. Then you have to do a fair bit of cleaning up of the exported document in Word before converting the exported text to a table.
