I do not able to see Show Slides in the View Menu. The toolbar does not include a 'Slides' icon nor one in the Customise Toolbar options.

Slides seems to have disappeared with the upgrade from 10.3 to 10.5 Help!

Have you read the blogpost of Michael Deutch before updating to the 10.5.x release?
http://blog.mindjet.com/2016/10/mindmanager-for-mac-version-10-5/

It tells us: "Finally, we’ve been doing some cleanup within the app and removed some of the outdated integrations along with several unsupported mapping features (Labels, Bookmarks, Slides)."

So it is not there and maybe you can find how to present as of now in the MindManager MAC help files?

The only reason I need it is that it appears to be impossible to print something simply to use as notes for a lecture. Any ideas?

I found this in the Help files:

Mindjet for Mac User Guide
102
PRINTING A MAP OR SLIDES
When you print your map it prints as displayed in Map View or Outline View. If your
map contains slides, you can
also choose to print these.
To print a map or slides:
1.
Choose File > Print.
2.
In the Print dialog, select the printer in the dropdown Printer menu.
3.
Click the disclosure triangle next to the Printer field to see a complete set of
options.
4.
Under Print, select Map or Slides, and then select the printing options you want to use.
5.
Click Print.
The map or slides are printed as displayed. For more information about using the Print options, see the Hints below.
H I N T S :

To change the orientation and margins for the printed map choose File > Page Setup. Choose Mindjet in
the Settings pop-up menu to set the margins. Select "Orient the map automatically" to have Mindjet
choose the best orientation for your map.

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 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 thatyou select from the Insert list.

To print only the topic notes for the currently selected topic(s) choose File > Print Notes.
There are other ways to distribute your maps besides as hard copies: You can export the map
in a variety of formats for distribution by email, or for use in another application, or you can quickly
send a map via Messages or iChat
.

Another option may be HTML5 export

"We’re excited to introduce a new universal file export based on HTML5 which produces an interactive file that can be opened in any modern browser. Reviewers of your map can navigate within the map, open and close branches, access links, attachments and view topic notes and other map data, pan and zoom, search for information and more. This is the most powerful map export we’ve ever offered and we plan to continue to evolve and expand its capabilities. ""

I just found that it is also possible to export to OPML.in MindManager for Mac 10.5.x

Than you can open it in any OPML reader.
