Is there a Mindjet 15 User Manual?

Hi there,
Using Mindjet onleine help there was a link to access a user manual.  It didn't work because the link was missing the "f" at the end to complete the link (a pdf). By copying the link and adding the "f" I was able to access and download the Mindjet Manager 14.2 User Manual.

I'm wondering if there is a Mindjet 15 User Manual, and if not when would it be coming. 

Interestingly if you Navigate to the website to get the user manual you arrive at another Mindjet User manual which is about 40 pages shorter, the manual doesn't indicate that it's for version 14 like the other one does BUT it's URL path includes 14 in it (whereas the one accessed thru online help from Mindjet has 14_2 in it's URL path and that manual indicates that it's version 14.

Figure I might as well learn this software with the user manual that fits the version if it's available.

There is a manual and it is available via MindManager 15's help system. Go to the contents and select Help Resources. On that page is a link to the user guide.

Yes, thanks.  I saw that link on the Help Resources page:  "Down the MindManger for Windows User Guid".  It doesn't work due to missing the "f" at the end of the link.  i.e. http://onlinehelp.mindjet.com/help/MJWin/14_2/ENU/documents/Mindjet_Windows_User_Guide.pd  <- f missing.  So I copied the link and manually added the "f".  Notice the link contains 14_2 in the URL.  That's seems to indicate that it's a Mindjet 14 manual.  And when I perused this manual the references are to Mindjet Manager 14. e.g. the table of contents has on page 1. "What's new in MindManger 14?"  By the way I tried changing the URL's 14_2 to 15, 15_1, 15_2.  Didn't work.

Yes I can confirm this. Wrong URL and also missing "f".

I clicked the link to open the User guide via Mindjet's help in MindManager 14.2 and MindManager 15. They both worked fine. The 'f' wasn't missing. Strange.

Could the problem be related to the installer? The original installer failed to recognise Office 365 32bit. The stand-alone 32bit installer correctly installed. However there could be differences related to the two different releases.

Michael, how about a link to the version 15 manual? That might immediately help Jack and others who want to access it.

Thanks Michael.  I installed the 64bit version of Mindjet.  Maybe the 32bit version had the correct link but not the 64bit.  Just a theory.  In any event I have the Mindjet Manager 15 manual.  Gonna try and take the long view and read the manual as part of the learning exercise to mastering this product.

Very strange, it should be the same help system as far as I know. I've asked our documentation guru to check it out :)
