Map: Link/click to a predefined expanded 'view' of select topics

  • Question
  • Updated 4 years ago

Hi,


I have a lot of information on X that I had to spread across 3 parent topics. I would like to predefine a view so that I could easily display only the nodes relevant to X (expand X's and collapse the rest).

Are predefined views possible in some way? Someone who isn't an owner would have trouble piecing together the parts of X otherwise.


Im on MindJet 15 for windows desktop.

You could mark topics belonging to specific views with map markers or tags, then save views as queries in the power filter. The same topics could then belong to more than one view.

Hi Nick,

Thanks for the reply. Tag/Filter does get us close to what we're trying to achieve.

1. is there a way to 'hyperlink' to a saved powerfilter within a map? If not, the user we share with may need to be explicitly told there is a filter to use.

2. Does the web version (when sharing) have the ability to filter, or even see the tags? I will give this a try shortly.

3. If question 1 works, I think it would be helpful to hide the tags so there aren't yellow boxes on all nodes in a topic. Do you know if that's possible?


Thanks!

Rohan

Hello Rohan
1. Not as far as I am aware
2. Not the last time I looked, but it might have been updated
3. Yes: View tab > Show/Hide then uncheck Tags (or any other visual item not needed).

Thanks Nick.

I'm having trouble simulating what it would be like to share the mindmap with someone who is not a mindjet user and would essentially just like to open a link and view the map in browser. Could you explain how to do that most realistically?


Thanks for bearing with me as I learn the tool. I signed up yesterday.


Best

Hello Rohan - you are doing very well if you signed up only yesterday! An easy way to share maps with others is to use the interactive PDF export, which is a PDF file containing a map that can be browsed and navigated. This would not let you do the advanced things such as predefined filters, but would let people explore maps without needing any special software.
