1. Importing a Mind Map File
Use the Import (1) button in the toolbar of your dashboard to import a mind map.
The following dialog will appear:
Just drag and drop your mind maps to the specified area or use the Browse... button to select a mind map file from your hard drive.
Tip: You can drag multiple mind maps into the drop area to upload them all at once.
MindMeister currently supports the following mind map formats:
All versions with extension .mind are supported
All versions with extension .mm are supported (version 0.9 and higher recommended)
All version 3.2.x and higher files with extension .xmind are supported.
- Mindjet MindManager™
All version 6 and higher files with extension .mmap are supported. Special formatting types such as OrgChart may not be imported.
- Plain text file
You can upload a plain text file with extension .txt (use spaces or tabs to indent lines, first line is the title of the map). Or follow the steps below.
2. Creating a Mind Map from Text
Instead of importing a mind map file, you can select the From Text option in the import dialog to create a mind map from a text outline.
Pasting: You can paste any text into the designated field. Each line will be transformed into a topic. Both tabs and spaces work as indents and result in new topic levels.
Writing: Instead of pasting a text from another source, you can also write new text directly into the designated field. Please note that in this case only spaces may be used as indents.
