Mindjet for Mac

Mindjet for Mac must be the most buggy platform I have ever used. I have lost at least 80 hours of work on this insanely deficient platform. It has unexpectedly shut down an average of 7 times in the past hour.

I can't believe that a platform out this long can be so flawed. Beware all Mac users.

We all know that MindManager for MAC has not the best functionality, especially if compared to the windows version.....We hope they come with a new and better version soon.

However, It has been around for all this time without crashes etc. to the extend you describe. If you have shutdowns 7 times per hour, you may have changed your MAC configuration incorrectly?

Also if you loose at least 80 hours of work.... do you save regularly?

I need to save my work after literally every single change I make. I save my work 30-40 times per hour. there is nothing wrong with my Mac. Every other program works perfectly.

There is a lot of work going on at Mindjet to improve the Mac version, see Michael's reaction here: https://community.mindjet.com/mindjet/topics/new-mac-version?topic-reply-list%5Bsettings%5D%5Bfilter...

It would be interesting to see what is causing the crashes on your system. Though limited in functionality compared to Windows, I don't think Mindjet for Mac is buggy by design as I use it on a daily basis without several crashes per hour.


Would you be able to share some more information, for example from the crash screen that pops up when the application shuts down? This information might contain a lead towards what is causing this crashing behavior, it could be related to another app on the system/file location/language etc.

I'll try. I was with Mindjet tech support multiples times and we couldn't find a solution.

I actually thought it was discontinued, that's how buggy it is.

Realy wait for New version!

Windows version is much more stable and much faster (maps with more information does not slow), more functionality.
Realy wait for a new version for Mac.
I need stability, speed, more modern interface, a better relationship with the cloud and sharing maps.
