Which Version am I Currently Using?

The old and new versions of MindMeister are very distinct:


New Version:



Old Version:



If you're already using the new version of MindMeister, congratulations! Stop reading and start mapping. 



Try the New Editor

MindMeister users who created their account before November 17th, 2021 will have the option to open maps in both the old and new editor. To do this:


  1. Click the blue plus (+) on the MindMeister dashboard. 
  2. Select your desired map editor from the dropdown menu.



Set Your Preferences to Open the New Editor by Default

You can set the new editor to your default editor under preferences. To do this:


  1. Click your user avatar in the top-right corner of MeisterTask.
  2. Select Preferences from the drop-down menu.
  3. Check the box labeled "Always use the new map editor."


If you use the new editor to make changes to a map created in the old editor, that old map will be "converted" into the new editor. To switch back to the old editor, you'll need to reach out to MindMeister support (see below).
