When you have made several interrelated mind maps, you may want to know how to organize these mind map together.There are two ways to do so.
a>.Add hyperlink to a mind map.
This situation is for the file stored on the cloud space. You can create a mind map for indexing. Then on the mind map, you create one topic for each mind map. Finally, add hyperlink which links to the related mind map.
To add hyperlink to you mind map, click "Edit" main menu, click "Hyperlink" submenu, a topic feature panel will show on the left or right of your mind map.Choose the Communications Protocol: http(s),mailto,topic,map, here we select "map".
At the bottom of this panel, there is a mind map list, if it is blank, click "Refresh" to search all you mind map from cloud space. Select the related mind map, click "Add". On the mind map, the current selected topic will have an "earch" icon on it's right side. That means an hyperlink to a mind map has beed add. When you click this icon next time, MindV will open the related mind map for you .
b>.Add attachment to a mind map.
This situation is for the file stored on you local computer. You can attach a local mindv map to a topic.The steps are:
- Increase the application storage quota:The application storage is assigned a secure storage area by the operating system to each application (including Mindv). Why it is called secure storage area ? because the storage area is isolated from your normal file system. Mindv based on Silverlight technology, can not access your file system directly, but it can access the "application storage". When a map includes image or attachement files, mindv will store a image or attachement map file in the "application storage" area temporarily, instead of in a disk folder. But the application storage's default quota is 1M, so it is proposed to expand the quota immediately. The proposed quota is 51 MB. Note that the quota can only be increased, not reduced; and quotas does not mean that it really occupy much disk space. When you click "1",a dialog box pops up. In the prompt window, do remember click "Yes" button.
- Select file: in file explorer select one or more mindv mind map files, these maps will be added to the application storage.
- Add attachment: Select a topic for adding attachment, click "Attachment" menu item,in the pops up dialog box , in the file lists, choose one file,click "confirmation" button.
If a topic has an attachment , there will be an icon on it's right side. An icon like this:
Now you have an index mind map, you can save it on cloud space, share this mind map to your team member. And at the next time, you and your team member can views these interrelated mind maps easily.
