This export method lets you export your mind map as a Microsoft® PowerPoint presentation.
If for instance you have created a mind map to brainstorm the structure of a business presentation,
this export mode allows you to transfer it to PowerPoint in order to refine it further before delivering
it to your audience.

If after working for some time on your PowerPoint presentation, you realize you need to review the
structure of your map in MindView before doing any further work in PowerPoint, you can re-import
it back into MindView without losing the layout work done in PowerPoint. See "Importing from
Microsoft PowerPoint" for more information.

You must have Microsoft PowerPoint installed on your computer in order to use this export
mode. MindView supports all Microsoft PowerPoint versions from 2000 onwards.

The root makes up the first slide, with the root label as the slide heading, followed by a list of the
main branches.

Each branch is then exported as a slide, with any sub-branches listed below the slide heading.
Inserted elements and hyperlinks are placed on the right side or at the bottom of the slide.

The branches of the map are exported to PowerPoint in the order in which they are displayed in the
Mind Map view, starting from the top right in a clockwise direction.

You can however exclude entire branches and sub-branches from the export by disabling their
'Include in export' property in the Properties dialog.

User Guide

Only the branches displayed on the workspace when you start the export procedure are
exported. This means that if you are focusing on a particular branch or set of branches (see
"Focusing on a branch") or if you are filtering the map to display only branches that meet specific
criteria (see "Filtering a mind map"), only the branches visible on the workspace will be exported.
To export the entire map, you need to go back to the full display by clearing the branch focus or
filter applied.

Export modes

There are two export modes available:

Quick Export

The Quick Export mode allows you to export your map quickly using the MindView
defaults or the last Advanced Export settings you chose if you have already used that mode.

Advanced Export

The Advanced Export mode lets you choose a PowerPoint template for your
presentation. It also allows you to specify the elements of your map to be exported and how
they should be treated.

The export settings you choose in Advanced Export are saved with the MindView document
and re-used next time you export your map using Quick Export or Advanced Export. This
means that you do not have to redefine them every time you make a small amendment to
your map and want to export it again to PowerPoint.

Relationship between MindView and PowerPoint elements and objects

The following table indicates how MindView treats the various inserted elements and attached
objects contained in your map when exporting it to PowerPoint.

MindView element

Exported to PowerPoint as

Branch name

Slide heading

Text note

Text object

Due to PowerPoint limitations, if the text note contains tables or
bulleted lists, these elements will be exported as regular text.
Similarly, if the text note contains a hyperlink, the formatting of
the hyperlink will be preserved, but not the link itself.

Branch picture

In Advanced Export, you can choose instead to insert the

or at the bottom of the slide

Using Quick Export

Click the MindView Button.

Choose Export | Microsoft PowerPoint | Quick PowerPoint Export.

If your MindView view contains several maps (i.e. several roots), choose the map you want to
export in the 'Select Map to Export' dialog and click OK.

MindView starts exporting your mind map to Microsoft PowerPoint as a new presentation, and
displays a message once the export is complete. You can then start working directly in PowerPoint
on your new presentation and save it with the name of your choice.

Using Advanced Export

Click the MindView Button.

Choose Export | Microsoft PowerPoint | Advanced PowerPoint Export.

If your MindView view contains several maps (i.e. several roots), choose the map you want to
export in the 'Select Map to Export' dialog and click OK.

Choose your preferred template in the Templates tab of the Advanced Microsoft PowerPoint
Export dialog or browse for one of the templates supplied with Microsoft PowerPoint.

128

User Guide

In the General tab, choose the required general export settings and specify which elements of
your map you want to export.

129

User Guide

If you exclude some elements from the export by deselecting them here, none of the
elements of this type will be exported, regardless of the value of their individual 'Include in
export' property in the Properties dialog. Let's suppose for instance your map contains a
floating picture whose 'Include in export' property is enabled. If you choose to exclude floating
pictures from the export here, your floating picture will not be exported. Conversely, if you
specify here that floating pictures should be exported, only the floating pictures whose
'Include in export' property is enabled will be exported.

Choose the required export settings for any attached object in the Attached Objects tab.

User Guide

As for Quick Export, MindView starts exporting your mind map to PowerPoint as a new
presentation, and displays a message once the export is complete.
