Is it possible to save a Mindmap as a PDF with all branches expanded?  We don't want clients to have to go through and client on each main heading to open it.

Ofcourse you can....

Just select a pdf-printer (like the free CutePDF) and print the expanded mindmap.
Works like a charm.

It is not that I am wanting to print it with the expanded branches on a PDF.  That is no problem. 

The problem is when I go to save my Mindmap as a PDF.  The file is saved as a "butler.pdf" (fox example.  When I open the PDF file, it shows the Mindmap but with all the branches not expanded.  We wanted a client to be able to be sent their Mindmap PDF file.  Be able to open it and see the entire MindMap and not have to expand everything to view it.

You can right-click on the Central Topic in the exported PDF viewer and choose "Show All Levels" to show all topics without needing to expand each one in turn. It would be a useful improvement to have a button to do this.

That did work.   Thanks.  I too wish MindJet would look at making this an option so we can send a client their Mindmap as a PDF with all the levels expanded if we wanted that option.
