I have a trial of MindManager that I am using on a tablet PC and do not see an option/tab or menu item ot use the pen. Worked in previous trials on this computer but those were not web based, it was Mindjet 12 and the trial was installed on my computer

To enable the pen functionality there should be a pen and mouse icon in the bottom left hand corner of the Mindjet Window. If this is not there, Windows has not recognised the device as a Tablet PC. If you go to Control Panel - Programs & Features - Turn Windows features on and off you find an option to turn the Tablet PC features on. (I can't find this in Windows 8) but you may be on an earlier OS.

Thanks, I do have Windows 7 on this Computer, but the checkbox is checked for Tablet PC Functions and the pen does work in other programs

Noticed your phrase "but those were not web based". Are you trying to get pen and ink working in a web version of Mindjet?

Yes, that what came up when I started my trial version?  Is there another trail I can get that works with a tablet that I can use a stylus?  Thank you so much for your responses so far!

The browser UI does not have ink and stylus gesture functions.

OK, do you know does Mindjet offer a trial that does have ink functions?  Do you know what I would need to do to get it?

Hi Karl,

To download a copy of the MindManager Windows trial, please use the following link to register for a trial.  http://www.mindjet.com/mindmanager/

MindManager Windows does support pen functionality whereas the Web version does not.

I hope this helps.
