Mindjet has released a new Word 2007 Map Editor for MindManager. It enables you to to share maps created in MindManager with colleagues and coworkers who use Microsoft Word 2007. They can open and edit the MindManager map embedded in the Word document file, and their changes will be reflected in the map when you re-open it in MindManager. This "round-trip" editing capability is made possible by Microsoft's adoption of open XML in its new Office 2007 suite, which includes Word 2007
The Word 2007 add-in installs a predefined set of MindManager icons, images, priorities, resources, and hierarchical structures into Word's new "ribbon" toolbars, helping to ensure a rich environment for collaboration and idea sharing. This new use of XML technology promises to revolutionize the ability of MindManager users to collaborate with colleagues who don't have the popular mind mapping software. It will also expose MindManager to a much larger audience of Office users, who previously would need to have the mind mapping program or a free file viewer installed on their PCs in order to view these visual maps.
The Word 2007 Map Editor is available for free from the Mindjet website.
