We took on to try Mindmanager as a tool to manage small projects (on mac) by the print options are very limited. We can't adjust any page setting and we are unable to prints a Gant chart??  Looks not very useful if we can't print.

Have you checked the online help?

To print a map:
  1. Choose File > Print.

  2. In the Print dialog, select the printer in the drop-down Printer menu.

  3. Click the disclosure triangle next to the Printer field to see a complete set of options.

  4. Click Show Details to see more Print options.

  5. Click Print.

The map is printed as displayed. For more information about using the Print options, see the Hints below.


  • To change the orientation for the printed map choose File > Page Setup. Choose Portrait or Landsape orientation..

  • Using the Print dialog's preview area, you can specify the number of pages to use: In this way you can shrink a large map to print on a single page, or enlarge a small map to print on several pages.

  • Maps print faster and use less ink if you do not print the map background. Deselect the Backgound option in the Print dialog if you don't want to print it.

  • To include a header and footer on your printed map, choose Format > Header and Footer. Enter the text for the Header and Footer as you want it to appear on the map. You can combine your own text with items that you select from the Insert list.

  • To print only the topic notes for the currently selected topic(s) choose File > Print Notes.

Hello Michael,

We apologize for the inconvenience, currently we do not have an ability to print Gantt charts with our initial release of the feature and it is definitely in our roadmap. We will be planning to add this to our next release. As a workaround you can take a screenshot and print it out separately. 
We will keep enhancing our offering to provide a better consistent experience.
I really appreciate your patience.

I tried to print on Mindmanager for Mac 13 but couldn ́t. It seems to me that it is not possible yet. Meanwhile, would it be possible to convert a gantt chart file into a pdf file? If anybody knows how to do it, please tell me so. Thanks
