Mindjet 5.2.344 on Windows 7 (in maximised/full screen mode) Hangs most of the time when Ctrl-S is pressed to save a fresh map. I suspect this is because the pop-up dialogue for some reasons did not come to the front; and since the pop-up is waiting for user input (which they user can never get to (because the Mindjet main screen is in front of it)), the user can only terminate the program from Task Manager. This is VERY ANNOYING considering I use this tool everyday!

MindManager X5 was not designed to work with Windows 7. It is from the XP ERA.

Right click the .exe file and run the program in XP compatible mode. Running as Administrator may also help.

The problem of having pop ups hiding behind other Windows is not unique to X5. Use AltTab or minimise the Windows to find the pop up. This can also happens when MindManager is accessing Outlook and Excel.
