Is it possible to print the Outline of the mind map? When I look at the outline on my screen everything is in the correct order but when I export to a pdf of the whole mind map and outline, the outline order is now all over the place.

Thanks in advance for the help.

    Hi @Deb B and welcome to the community 👋🙂

    When you create a mind map, it is important to remember that MindMeister only sees the order in which the items were created.

    So if you change the order of these items later, MindMeister will still print them as they were created. I have covered this topic more detailed in this post. I hope this helps you out.

    Best, Jörg

    Thanks for that. It would be great in future updates if MindMeister was a bit more dynamic. Often the process of mind mapping is to just get stuff out of your head and then arrange it in the order you want it later. There is an obvious benefit to then being able to print whichever version of the map and the 'outline' that you are working with. Do you know if there are any plans for this in the future or if there is another way it can be done?

    Thanks again for the response.

    Bes, Deb.

    Definitely agree with your feedback here Deb, and have forwarded this on to our product team. I also find the order of the map outline to be somewhat unintuitive. Our team is currently reviewing this — I'll keep this and the other thread Jörg mentioned updated with our plans.

    Yes, I too use MindMeister to brainstorm or to summarize information and then print it out in an outline form. That is all I need…the ability to export or print the mindmap as it is in Outline view.

    Thanks for considering this option for the near future.
