Here's my problem. I run a windows/ubuntu dual boot. When I make mindmaps in Ubuntu, I can't open them in Windows. This is inconvenient for various reasons. Does anyone know a way to fix this?
I should be more clear. The files open, but they don't have the right content. They just appear like a new, totally empty, mindmap.
If you would create a bug report and attach an example mind map that cannot be opened in Windows to help me reproduce and investigate the problem, I can have a look at it. Otherwise, I do not know what is going wrong. FreeMind is cross platform; its mind map format is not specific to an operating system. Some diagnostic questions: do you have this problem with all mind maps or only with some mind maps? If only with some mind maps, is there something peculiar to those problem-creating mind maps? -Dan
Please also state which version of FreeMind you are using. -Dan
Sorry-new to the forum, relatively inexperienced linux user. Bug report created here: https://sourceforge.net/tracker/?func=detail&aid=3162687&group_id=7118&atid=107118.
I have this problem with all mindmaps created in ubuntu. There is nothing particularly peculiar about any of the mindmaps that I tested this with. I can create mindmaps in windows, modify them in ubuntu, and then open them properly in windows.
I answered and closed the bug report along the lines:
That's not a bug, that's a feature, and it has nothing to do with Windows
vs. Ubuntu: 0.8 maps will open fine in FreeMind 0.9.x but not the other way
around. Install FreeMind 0.9.0 on Windows and you'll be fine.
Hope this helps, Eric
I see now that this was rather obvious. In any case, thanks for the help.
