I created a series of mindmaps (14) that I now want to make into a power point presentation. One presentation for each map. The maps were created in Mindmanager 8. What is the best way to do this?

I can't remember or check at the moment if MindManager 8 had a PowerPoint export. If it does this may help:

Guide to MindManager 7 and PowerPoint

Otherwise export the maps or parts of the map (using level of detail or show/hide) as images and insert into the PowerPoint slides. If possible use insert and link. Then if you reexport the map or part of, the slide will be updated

I'm assuming that in stating that the maps were created in MM 8 you are still using that version.

MM8 did come with a PowerPoint export facility. However it works quite differently to the approach used in MM 9 and 2012. I think from memory it is similar to the MM 7 process described by Andrew, which is more fiddly than the current method but also gives the user more control.

If you want the actual maps to appear in the slides as images then follow Andrew's suggestion. However if you want the content to appear as PowerPoint slide titles and bullet points and you can't figure out the MM export to PowerPoint process, you can always export to Word and then open the Word file in PowePoint.

The export to Word will turn main topics into main headings, the next level of subtopics into first level sub headings and so on. Importing from Word into PowerPoint will then turn the main headings into slide headings, the first level sub headings into first level bullet points and so on.

Another alternative is to use the Opti-Word add-in to handle the export. The advantage of this is that you can apply whatever level of Word headings you like to any topic or subtopic, so you can structure the Word export and consequently the PowerPoint layout without changing the structure of the map itself. Opti-Word is available for all versions of MM from 7 onwards.
