One of the seldom-discussed feature of MindManager X5 Pro is the ability to read and write XML files. XML is a text-based self-defining data format that MindManager X5 is built upon. In MindManager, this XML-reading and writing feature is called Transformations and registered transformations appear as file types in the File Open and File Save-As dialog boxes. Transformations are XSL files that define how one XML file is programatically mapped to another. Writing these XSL files is a software development task that Mindjet Developer Support can help you with.
Examples of XML formats that transforms can be written for include:
Microsoft Office 2003
Outline Processor Markup Language (OPML)
We have written inbound transformations for FreeMind and OPML to see how transformations can be built. Give it a try! If you build something cool, share it with us and we will post it in here and in our DevZone!
