Hi!

I am missing the brainstorming mode. It should be in the home tab under "Tools", but here I only have "Marker Index" and "Share". How can I access this mode?

My version is MM 2012, 10.0.445

Regards,
Felix

It looks like you are not running the most recent version of MindManager. Go to the File Tab>Help>Check for Updates. Once you have completed the update, let me know if the Brainstorm icon is still missing.

Does the Brainstorm tab show up when you right click on an icon in the ribbon and select "Customize Quick Access Toolbar?" You may also try moving the Brainstorm icon to the Quick Access Toolbar and then elect to "Show Quick Access Toolbar below the Ribbon."

Please let me know whether or not this is helpful. Thank you.

Check if you have your brainstorm mode enabled:
File> Options;
In the "add-ins" section the option "Brainstorming add-in" must be selected.

I am unable to activate the addin as I receive an error message saying unable to connect to the addin. I have emailed my response requesting that support see full details in the problem document that I attached as this problem needs a little more thought and a full response as I dont have time to spend weeks tweaking this and that. I bought this software to help me complete a masters level project over the bank holiday. Obviously this isnt going to happen now. If I cannot get a speedy response I need to obtain speedy refund from software4students.co.uk. Please advise as a matter of urgency.
