I have about 40 mindmaps that I would like to create a word summary for.  I have a .dot template document and have generated a word doc in the format I am after.  I would like to keep these settings and automate the conversion if possible as ideally don't want to have to manually do each document one by one.  I couldn't see much in the way of help in this area in the documentation.  I am familiar with VBA as program in Excel.

I am running 2019 version on Windows (32 bit)

Thanks in advance

Hello Paul. The export to Word is implemented as an add-in and is not part of the object model that can be accessed with VBA. While the add-in objects can be discovered, they do not expose any commands. So unfortunately there are no routes for automating bulk exports, and the multimap view (linked maps) does not support bulk export operations either. It may be possible to automate the UI by sending keyboard shortcuts to MindManager but this would be quite fragile. You could try contacting Nigel Goult at Olympic Ltd as he has an alternate Word export, and bulk operations might be an option for that.
