I want to insert an image into a topic without downloading it first from the web, is it possible ? I've tried to use the url in the "file name" field but it didn't work. And Copy and Paste just create a new subtopic with the image; as I want the image in the central topic this is not a good solution. Thanks.

I believe the following was added in Mindjet version 11 (MindManager 2012 was version 10) but you can try to make sure. I'm working @ home so I don't have access to 2012 at the moment.

If you open the web page in Mindjet's internal browser, right click on the image and select "Send Image to Mindjet" (in your case it'll say, Send Image to MindManager. There you go.

Or, you can purchase SnagIt. They have a free utility that lets you screen capture images and then send them into your map as topics.

Also, you can drag the image from the pasted subtopic to the main topic by first clicking on the pasted image and then dragging the image to the central topic?

You may need to click twice. First click on the topic with the image. Then click and hold on the image itself. Drag to the new topic. Try that.
