Search within exported linked maps?

  • Question
  • Updated 4 years ago
I'd like to have a fairly complex set of linked maps.

Once exported (to Web Page/SWF/PDF etc), is it possible to allow someone to quickly search through all the maps? (not the project file itself, but an export)

I've seen features like this on other mind mapping apps (can't find an example at the moment)

If users aren't able to easily find things, it's kind of a deal breaker.

I did a search through the community and wasn't able to find this specific question.

Thanks for your suggestion. If you can let me know of any other app that has such a feature, I'll review it. As of right now, once you export any file from MindManager, you need to rely on your standard methods for searching content (e.g. Windows Search). There is nothing currently built into the application to search exported content. Again, I'm happy to review any other app that might serve as a reference / example of what you are looking for.

This isn't the exact application I was thinking of, but Mindomo has a similar feature.

If you browse some of their online mindmaps, you see the search function at the bottom.

I've seen a better implementation where you search a word, and a popup lists all the suggestions. Similar to a google search.

I found it. TheBrain. Worth taking a look at the feature. At 1:15 in the video. I haven't used it myself, but conceptually I really like the idea.

TheBrain fast search capability is fantastic.

One way to do this is to export a multi-map set to a web site, then compile that web site into a single executable using one of the "HTML compilers" on the market. Many of them have indexing and search features, so the exported content gets indexed and users can search it as a single resource.

www.htmlexe.com is an example of this type of tool, although I have not tested it and don't have any connection with them.

Hi Guys,

Sorry, I somehow missed these responses - thank you! If I find the app that indexes again, I will share it. I clearly remember seeing the feature in the video but can't recall the exact app.

Where are you storing your maps? In the Mindjet cloud service? Locally? The desktop's search feature can look at a local folder or in an account online and search all your maps for content.

Ideally we will eventually share them on out local intranet, on our project Confluence pages.

Have you submitted a request to Confluence to allow searching of the content?

No, not yet anyway. Still testing out our options.
