    Hi and others! Exporting a mind map (even if you're currently viewing the map!) will also export a text outline of the map (along with an image of the map).

    You can also just export the map as a simple RTF file, which I think would be the easiest way of copy/pasting the map outline into another tool,

    You can export the map/outline by clicking as shown here:

    Hope this helps!

    Hi @Kdibra2557,

    I tried it out. I couldn't "export" it in either way. But maybe I just searched at the wrong place. 🤔

    If it's not possible, I think this would be a great feature request.

    The impossible does not exist! The solution has just not been found yet!

    Hi @Kdibra2557,

    like @Rooster McNugget mentioned, it's not possible to export outlines in MindMeister. But to be honest, it's a very quick workflow to copy the outline in MindMeister and paste it into the desired program. If you for example insert the copied outline to word, you can edit it and save it as a pdf.

    If you'd like to make a feature request, yo can find some nice guidelines here.

    Best, Jörg

    Please tell me how to copy the outline! I cannot get it to work. It seems I can only copy one element of it, not the whole thing!
