MindVisualizer is more portable-friendly now

I didn’t update my mind mapping software blog for a while, here are some noticeable changes in the latest MindVisualizer mind mapping software.

Auto detects drive letter changes

There is a headache thing when using the portable ?version of MindVisualizer on a USB memory stick – the drive letter changes when you plug your USB drive into other computers, and as a result, hyperlinks that link to files in the portable USB stick will become broken.

Now here is the solution for this headache: MindVisualizer automatically detects the drive letter changes, that means if your portable memory stick is F:\ on your computer and you have your mind maps stored in folder F:\mind\maps\for\work\ and you are cross linking them, your hyperlinks will not be broken when you plug your portable stick memory stick to your office computer and use MindVisualizer Portable, even the drive letter has changed to G:, H: or whatever it is.

Easy mind mapping with keyboard shortcuts

Now ind a mind map, you can move a child node up/down with keyboard shortcuts: <Alt> + <Up/Down> arrow keys.

Now you can move the selected floating topics in your mind maps around with <Alt> + arrow keys.

MindVisualizer mind mapping software V3.8.8: enhanced document export

Now with the?new version 3.8.8.1268 of our mind mapping software MindVisualizer, the image of the mind map will be included in the first page of the exported document. Formats affected:
