Export Mind Maps

To export your mind map, use the right-click on the background or go to the File List Menu:

Export as mind map formats

  • Mindomo File (.mom)

Our basic export format which allows to save your mind map without any attached files.

  • Mindomo Pack (.pmom)

This format will compress your mind map and all its attached files into a single .pmom file saved locally. You can share the .pmom file with other Desktop users so they can access the map along with all its attached files from their own computers.

  • Freemind File (.mm)
  • MindManager File (.mmap)

Export as Excel

  • Horizontal Outline (.xls)

The central topic becomes the first cell, then the main topics become column B. All subtopics will fill in the next columns of the file.

  • Horizontal Tree (.xls)

This format keeps the layout of the Horizontal Outline in a more compact manner.

  • Gantt Chart Data (.xls)

The central topic will be displayed on the top of the file as title. The topics and subtopics will be aligned under the tasks column. If there are task specifications they will be shown

  • Vertical Outline (.xls)

The central topic becomes the title of the file, then the main topics become the columns. All subtopics will fill in the next rows in the columns of each main topic.

Export as PDF

When downloading your mind map to PDF format, you can choose the PDF size and you can also select the option to generate your file with the background color/picture.

The hyperlinks added in your mind map become clickable links on the PDF file.

Export as Microsoft Word

When downloading your mind map to DOCX format, you can choose the size of your file:

The central topic becomes the title of the exported document and will appear at the top with a bigger font size. Your main topics and subtopics will be listed in a headings hierarchy up until the 4th level. After the 4th level, all the subtopics will be listed as normal text with indentation. Notes are exported exactly as they are in the mind map (keeping their stylings such as bulleting, numbering, font size, and color).

Comments will appear on the right side of the document, in a column, each comment connected to its topic with a dotted line. The comments will also display the initials of the person who added it and the date it was added.

A table of contents can also be created from the exported .docx file.

Export as Microsoft PowerPoint

When you export your mind maps you have two options:

  1. Export slides

For using this option, you need to have a presentation created for your mind map. When exporting, every slide will be captured in screenshots and the text from the topics is exported under the slides, as notes.

  1. Export main topics

Choose this option if your mind map doesn't have a presentation created. The slides in the exported file will contain each main topic with its connected subtopics.

Export as Text

When exporting as text, main topics and subtopics are marked with indentations. The notes and the comments are displayed right under the topic they correspond to.

Export as OPML

The structure of your OPML file will be based on the hierarchy of the mind map.

Export as Microsoft Project (.mpx)

Export as Microsoft Project (.xml)

Export as HTML

The exported file will have the icon of your default browser.
