Share as Image

Share as image export

Exporting as an image shows the mind map like you see it in SimpleMind. The pdf format can be opened by anyone and is usually the best choice.
Because an image shows the mind map  as you see it, notes are not visible. If needed, add a Notes report


Outline text

Select .html or .txt to import the file in word processors. The .html outline includes links and notes.


Mind Map formats

Export in original .smmx format to share your mind maps with others that have SimpleMind Pro or use the free SimpleMind Viewer for Mac or Windows.

It is possible to share as basic Freemind (.mm) or opml files. Opml is supported by most outliner and mind mapping apps, Freemind is supported by most mind mapping apps. This exports only the most basic information like text, notes and hierarchy. Any additional information, such as images will be discarded.
