Where Are Options and Preferences Settings for MindJet MindManager 7?

September 15th, 2009 · 3 Comments · Time Management, Project Tools & Productivity

MindJet MindManager is one of my favorite mindmapping software applications. If you are looking all over for the Options or Preference settings in version 7, then you are not the only one.

It’s quite simple, really, but somewhat hidden in their non-standard user interface.

Click the circle logo in the top left of the application window. This is referred to as the “MindManager Menu.” Then at the very bottom you will see two buttons, “Exit” and “Options”. There it is!

If you want to provide yourself a shortcut, then Right-Click in the Toolbar area next to Tools. Select “Customize Quick Access Toolbar…” Choose commands from “MindManager Menu” and select, “MindManager Options.”

    One begins to wish that there were some sort of “standards” for finding options to tweak They certainly can be ambiguous.

    Thanks for helping us out, Jerry!

    Download my preferred settings (in a map) for the MindManager Options at the bottom of this page.

    If you want speed up MindManager:

    Save — Compression on Saving – Super Fast
    Save — Stop – Save Auto Recover (risky)
    Visual Effects — Turn them off
    Spelling — Stop – Check spelling as you type
    Add-Ins — Turn off the ones you don’t use

    This may also help with any application crashing you may have. Not affecting me with 8.0.235 on Windows 7
