PowerPoint – from branches to bullet points

The famous (or infamous) PowerPoint presentations are ubiquitous and so MindManager also offers the means of breaking up a Mind Map into this format.

In this way, the Mind Map is literally broken up into small morsels and transferred to transparencies or slides. Each main branch on level 1 is displayed as a heading on a transparency. Any sub-branches appear as bullet points and dashes.

This function too may be useful if you have to transfer a Mind Map to linear format.

tip.eps When a Mind Map is converted to linear format a lot of its information content is lost. A combination of both may be useful. A Mind Map can be inserted as an image file into a presentation file to give viewers an idea of the connections within the Mind Map. Detailed information can then be displayed in the ordinary presentation form.
