I've just received the email notification about the 14.1 service pack which notes that PDF Exchange (which I suspect is actually PDF Xchange) is no longer supported in MindManager.

To quote the release notes:

"PDF Exchange is no longer shipped with MindManager which enabled the ability to save, export and print to flat PDF files. Install a PDF Driver on your system like Adobe Acrobat or a free version like CutePDF Writer and these capabilities will continue to be enabled."

I suspect this could have major implications for some users who don't have a PDF driver on their system outside of the one that came with previous versions of MindManager. Adobe Acrobat costs a lot of money and the instructions for installing CutePDF Writer are a little opaque. This could be a headache in sites with multiple installations.

Would someone at Mindjet care to comment on why a core, basic functionality such as the ability to export or print to PDF files is being removed from MindManager when they have become commonplace in other programs, such as MS Office?

Found it a little odd to.

But I have been using Fineprint and PDF Factory for many years.

I've created a free and simple Add-In for the export to PDF. You can find more about it here: http://necsus.com/export2pdf
