Hello,
I'm usingt mindmanager 9 and trying to display a gantt of a project with 2 years timescale. Mindmanager does not allow me to reduce scale that it fits to screen (largest time-unit is month rather than year etc.).
How to print or export gantt for use in powerpoint? I found the dialogue under file-print-printgantt, but it does not look good in pdf.

Any solution?

Thanks and best regards,
Georg Raming

You can print the Gantt Chart out - the best way to do that would be to print it horizontally. In terms of exporting the Gantt to Power Point, that functionality is currently not there. Please feel free to submit this as an idea for our product team to take into consideration. Thank you.

Hello,
thanks for the reply.
I know the possibility to print, but in my opinion the quality is rather poor (not that quality other things in mindmanager are) and not nice to used for powerpoint.
I have a project with 2 years duration, a possibiliy to shrink timescale (e.g. years instead of month that is largest unit) would help also to just copy gantt from screen.
When printing to pdf, text is that small, that it is difficult to read in powerpoint after cut and paste.

Any further hint?

Thanks and best regards,
Georg

The Gantt chart was not designed to be exported or made into a PowerPoint presentation. I would recommend submitting this as an idea. Our product team would love to hear your thoughts as they are always looking for ways to improve our products. Thank you!

Hello,
I have the same issue as Georg with a Project 2 years duration.
Is it possible to change the timescale from month into years or to make the mounth columns smaller now?
I use MindManager Pro 9.2.504
OS: Windows 7 Professional 64-bit Version 6.1.7600

Thanks in advance
Michael
