I transferred Freemind maps from my Windows PC and when I try to open them (with latest Java and latest everything) I get the message 'An error occurred on opening the file: Mindmap…..'. What is happening? I'm not technical, but am dogged (and exhausted by things that don't work) and will try and try and try…Thank you! Sally
With which version of FreeMind did you save the mind maps on Windows?
With which version of FreeMind do you open the mind maps on the Mac?
You can view the log FreeMind is writing by opening Terminal.app and the type "tail -F ~/.freemind/log.0" and the hit return.
The Windows version is 0.8.1 and the Mac version is 0.9.0. (I don't know how to do what you suggest above on the Mac, I just looked as FreeMind was opening…), Sally
