The Next Generation of MindManager Add-ins!
OPTi-Add-ins is the new add-in platform which replaces our popular OPTi-Suite add-in for users of MindManager 2012 and future versions. This new platform offers you a selection of add-ins completely free of charge, as well as others which can be purchased as needed individually or in money saving bundles.
The new platform lets you to choose the add-ins you unlock and display in your OPTi-Add-in menu, so you can enable only those add-ins you need on a regular basis or you can have all add-ins on show and accessible 24/7.
How it works!
First, you need to download the OPTi-Add-in installer. Download the file, unzip and run the installer to install the add-in. Once installed you can access the OPTi-Add-in menu within MindManager as shown above.
Extending your collection!
With OPTi-Add-ins installed you can see all available add-ins by selecting the Info/Options item from the menu. This will display a dialog showing all the current add-ins and show which ones are unlocked, enabled or disabled. You can click links on unlocked add-ins to visit the web page for that particular add-in to see step by step how it works or if the add-in is yet to be unlocked you can click the links to visit the website to purchase an unlock code.
OPTi-Addins Options
The add-ins are split into three categories; BasicPremium and Free.
  • Basic Addins – offer additional functionality to MindManager that is simple but effective. They are priced lower than Premium add-ins because they require less development time.
  • Premium Addins – are often more complex in their development and offer a greater functionality and are great time savers for some common repetitive tasks
  • Free Addins – included with OPTi-Add-ins and already unlocked and enabled for use. Over time we will add more free add-ins as they become available.
You can choose which add-ins to unlock and when to enable them using the small check-box located next to the add-in name. When you close the dialog OPTi-Add-ins will update to reflect your changes.
Basic OPTi-Add-ins
The Basic OPTi-Add-ins are versatile and provide very useful functions for the everyday MindManager user. These add-ins are available for a small cost and can be purchased either individually or in bundles where available.
The current Basic OPTi-Add-ins are:
Topics2 DateTopics2 Date

Task Pane Selector
Select the Task Pane tabs to display in your MindManager session to improve access and save time.
Premium OPTi-Add-ins
The Premium OPTi-Add-ins have required a greater amount of development time and are priced accordingly dependent on the level of complexity and value to the user. Again these add-ins can be purchased individually or in bundles where available.
The current Premium OPTi-Add-ins are:
Topic CalculatorTopic Calculator
Select a Topic with numerical text and calculate various mathematical functions such as addition, subtraction, multiplication, division etc. Also allows common conversions for weight, speed, length etc.

Basic OPTi-Add-ins

Topics2 Date
Topics2 Date
A simple add-in that lets you insert the current date into a Topic with the option to include the day of the week. The add-in lets you do this to a single selected Topic or you can create a range of new Topics each with the date and day of week between a chosen start and end date.
When you select the Topic2 Date option from the OPTi-Add-in menu you will see a dialog that allows you to choose what action you wish to perform.
Topics2 Date
The result for a single Topic is shown below
Topics2 Date
When selecting a date range, you insert multiple dated Topics into the Map.
Topics2 Date
The result of selecting Create Date Range is shown below.
Topics2 Date
This add-in is useful if you are a MindManager user who likes to create Map calendars or weekly plans.
Topics2 Markers
Topics2 Markers
If you are an avid user of Map Markers in MindManager this add-in might be for you. It enables you to create Map Marker Groups and populate them with Map Markers from Map Topics.
One useful application of this add-in is when you use MindManager to map meetings and you have an attendee Topic within your Map. With Topics2 Markers you can select the Attendee Topic and automatically create and populate a Map Marker Group which can then be used to assign users to Tasks etc.
Topics2 Markers
The new Map Marker Group and its Map Markers
Topics2 Markers
With the Map Markers now in the Map you can start assigning them to Topics
Topics2 Markers
Topics2 Total
Topics2 TotalIf you use MindManager to track sales data or other financial information, you can use the Topics2 Total add-in to quickly calculate the total of multiple selected Topics providing that the Topics contain purely numerical Text.
Topics2 Total
With the Topics selected click the Topics2 Total menu button
Topics2 Total
A dialog will appear that shows the calculated total and gives you the option add a Topic to the Map
Topics2 Total
If you select the option to display the result as a new Floating Topic in Map then you get the following result
Topics2 Total
You can now drag this Topic to a new location and edit the text to suit your subject.
Task Pane Selector
Too many Task Panes making it hard to see which is which?…
…Task Pane Selector is the cure!
Task Pane Selector is the latest function added to the Basic range of OPTi-Add-ins.
Sometimes when you have installed several 3rd party add-ins that utilise the Task Pane collection of MindManager you can find that as you add more the tabs of the panes become smaller, sometimes to the point of obscuring the captions on the tabs making it harder to locate the correct pane quickly. Task Pane Selector changes all that by allowing you to choose which Task Pane tabs are visible in your MindManager session.
Simply click the Task Pane Selector icon from the OPTi-Add-ins menu and you will be presented with a dialogue that displays all of the currently enabled Task Panes.
Use the check-boxes to select the Task Panes you want to display and then hit the Apply button to update the settings.
Task Pane Selector also allows you to force tab visibility for some Task Panes that remain hidden until you activate a particular function. The Topic Styles Task Pane is sometimes handy to have accessible when formatting lots of map content saving you time and reducing the amount of mouse clicks to complete the process.
Task Pane Selector can be purchased as a single addition to unlock, as part of the Basic bundle or obviously included in our Master Unlock Code which not only unlocks all the current OPTi-Add-ins functions but also all those we release throughout 2012.

Premium OPTi-Add-ins

Topic Calculator
Topic Calculator
The Topic Calculator add-in lets you perform simple calculations on Topics that contain purely numerical text. It will currently let you perform the following:
  • Basic calculations: – Addition, Subtraction, Multiplication, Division, Percentage, Squared,  Square Root, Cos, Sin & Log
  • Imperial t0 Metric/Metric to Imperial conversions – Length, Area, Volume & Mass
When using Topic Calculator, select a purely numerical Topic, then select the type of calculation either, Basic Calculus, Metric to Imperial Conversion or Imperial to Metric Conversion. If you select Basic Calculus you must enter a Factor to use in the calculation. So for example, if you had a numerical Topic of 25.00 and you wanted to add 365.87 to it then we would enter 365.87 as the Factor.
Topic Calculator
You then select the type of calculation from the drop down and the result is then displayed.
Topic Calculator
You can then choose whether to add the result to the Map as a Sub-Topic or a Call Out on the selected Topic.
Topic Calculator
The result is then added to the Map
Topic Calculator
Conversions do not require a Factor to be provided. Simply select the Topic and then choose between Metric to Imperial or Imperial to Metric
Topic Calculator
Select the conversion to perform from the drop down as before
Topic Calculator
The result is displayed as before and in this instance the result has been added to the Map as a Call Out.
Topic Calculator
Link2 Attachment
Link2 AttachmentThis add-in allows you to convert documents that are Hyperlinked to your Topics into an Attachment for the selected Topic so that it stays with the map, so if you email the Map to a colleague they will have access to the information. It also offers the choice to keep the original Hyperlink as well as adding the Attachment or to just simply replace the Hyperlinked document.
Select a Topic with a Hyperlinked document and click the Link2 Attachment command on the OPTi-Add-ins menu
Link2 Attachment
If you want to keep the Hyperlink as well as adding the Attachment then select Yes from the Option Dialog.
Link2 Attachment
The Document will be added to the selected Topic as an Attachment allowing you to distribute the map so that all readers can view the document.
The add-in will also handle Topics with multiple Hyperlinks on them.
Link2 Attachment
Note: This will only work with files that are Hyperlinked on a standard file path. Web-based files are not supported.
Topics2 Linked Maps
Topics2 Linked Maps
Sometimes Maps just become too big to manage. When this happens you can use the Send To Linked Map command within MindManager to create linked Map structures that you can navigate from Map to Map by Hyperlinks on the Map Topics. This function allows you to do this in a batch mode. It also works on Topics that contain multiple Hyperlinks which the inbuilt MindManager version does not.
First you need to mark the Topics you wish to create linked Maps from. To do this open the Map Markers Task Pane and mark the topics you wish to include with the OPTi-Send-To-Linked-Map Marker.
Topics2 Linked Maps
With the Topics marked you can then select the Topics2 Linked Map command from the OPTi-Add-ins menu to start the routine.
Topics2 Linked Maps
You can select options that allow you to keep the existing Topics or have them removed. You can also choose whether to have a reciprocal Hyperlink back to the source Map if you wish. Once you have confirmed your choices, click OK to start the process.
Topics2 Linked Maps
Wait for the process to complete, after which you will have newly created Maps located in the same root folder as your source Map.
Topics2 Linked Maps
You can choose View - Linked Maps within MindManager to see the result.
Topics2 Linked Maps
Topics2 Notes
Topics2 Notes
A great utility for condensing maps with too many Topics into a more manageable map. The utility takes all Sub-Topics of the selected Topic and adds them to the selected Topics Notes.
Topics2 Notes
The map structure above will result in the following Text notes:
