The free version of SimpleMind in the AppStore and SimpleMind purchased via our website have the same name. As a result, when you install SimpleMind you can no longer start the free version. To fix this,

  • Open Finder and click Applications. Rename SimpleMind to SimpleMind Pro.
  • Install SimpleMind (the free version) from the Mac AppStore.
  • Run SimpleMind (the free version). From the main menu select “SimpleMind” →”SimpleMind Preferences” and select the tab “Local Mind Maps”.
    Preferences - Local
  • Click “Export Mind Map Store”. Choose a filename and location, for example, the desktop.
  • Start SimpleMind Pro. From the main menu select “SimpleMind” → “SimpleMind Preferences” and select the tab “Local Mind Maps”.
  • Click “Import Mind Map Store” and select and import the .smmstore file you just created with the free version of SimpleMind.
  • Check if all mind maps are imported into SimpleMind Pro.
  • Open Finder and click Applications. Remove SimpleMind. Rename SimpleMind Pro back to SimpleMind.
