Bug? A hyperlink from MM 2012 to OneNote 2010 (32-bit) don ́t work correct. In OneNote is always opening the last note. The icon on the MM-thought is from Internet Explorer not from OneNote.

Hi Gerwin

1. Your hyperlink maybe something like this:

MindManager truncates the URL at the first ? because this is an arguement. Even if you move the part of URL after the question mark to the optional arguement field it still goes to the first note rather than the specific note. Mindjet have known about this for years. It also affects applications like Word and Adobe going to a specific page.

2. Icon (favicon) will be your default browsers icon or the favicon of the web site it links to if it exists. If will be the icon of the app on your computer if the hyperlink is to a registered file type on your computer.

It seems to be different if I make a link to a OneNote-notebook synchronized with SkyDrive or not. If it is a notebook syncronized with SkyDrive, we see the SkyDrive favicon on the thought, if not there is the IE-favicon not the OneNote favicon which I would expect.

If I have a SkyDrive-synced notebook, the link contains two parts: the link to the SkyDrive notebook and the link to notebook on my PC. You can see it if you paste the link in a notes field.

MM should recognize these two links if I make a hyperlink and I would like to choose which link I want to use.

The problem occurs in mindmanger version > 7. The link which is pasted in a mindmanager branch is always the same to edit. Mindmanger 7.1 opens the correct onenote page. The greater mindmanger versions don't: sometimes the onenot page is opened after the second mouse click on the link. It seems to be a mindmanager version-specific problem. This is one reason, why I am still using mindmanager 7 (the second reason is that mind2chart add in ist very much better than the mindmanager 12 gantt function. And it is a pitty that the olympic add ins are dead, because mm bought them).(Holger holgergr at
