#1106 Maps link fails in Jave applet export


I have added some maps which work in Freemind itself. I can hover and see an insert map, double-click open one or select a set and open them via the right-click menu. When I export as [Java applet] I do not (in the exported HTML) see the world icon and clicking simply opens/folds the underlying tree ~ there is no map capabilty in my exported web page.

As an aside I would prefer www.maps.google.com than mapnik BUT mapnik work in standalone FreeMind mode.

    Also :-) Notes do not export well. In FreeMind a note a) shown under the map b) shows when you hover over the notes icon (wish it stayed open longer, it has quite a short timeout). After export hovering over the notes field open a small window under the map but there are no contents.

    Also :-) (and related, which is why I am adding them to the main topic) when in FreeMind link with the mailto:<e-mail> works as expected ~ they open an Outlook e-mail (with Subject if required) however after exporting the same link opens both a web page (with an error message) AND an Outlook e-mail. The web page trigger is unwanted.

    to export maps, there are currently two possibilities:
    * You can add a hyperlink to openstreetmap.org (add link feature via right click on the node in the mindmap) or
    * You can insert a small map picture as a child

    Both those work Chris, but not in the neat way your maps work within FreeMind (e.g. hover to see an inset pop-up). Its not a major issue, I'm just highlighting a GotYa for the next release.

    Dear user,

    your bug has been fixed in some of the latest versions of FreeMind version 1.0.0 (currently in beta state).

    HTH, Chris
