The location of shapes and text boxes is incorrect on the HTML5 export compared to the original map.  I cannot work out how to correct this.  Help or suggestions most appreciated.

It seems that the background image (with the swimlanes and headings) is only covering part of the complete map.
After export to HTML5 the background will be placed on / from the center of the page, that can cause the alignment differences.
Maybe you can try to make the background to equal the size as the map and see what happens?

Hi - thanks for your response. 

The lines (acting as swim lanes) and headings are individual objects rather than a background image as such.  It sounds as though this may be the root of the problem?  Is there any way of keeping them as individual elements but somehow locking them to the aspect ratio of the topic levels?

Or, keeping in mind your suggestion above, should I create them as a background image (although then each element would be static in relation to one another e.g. the width of a swim lane)?  Although I still don't know how to ensure the background size is the same as the map though....

Thanks in advance :-)

Well, Mindjet has a somewhat different approach on definitions of backgrounds and topics etc etc.

There are some webinars that explain what and why. You may want to spend some time and view them. That may explain why the software behaves as it does.

Still you have a good suggestion for MIndjet developers so we expect they will read this.
