    Would like to know if I can attach XLS or Word or Powerpoint files to a node and have them open on clicking?

    There is no way to attach files to a node in FreeMind, neither in 0.9.0 nor in earlier versions.

    There is a feature request for this:

    You may vote for the feature request by posting "I would like to see this implemented too" or the like to the feature request.

    What you can currently do is hyperlink to files from nodes, but then you have to take care you send the files with the mind map when sending the mind map to other people.

    I'm fairly new to Freemind, but you might also want to save a local copy of the file(s) in your /Freemind folder (which you would then link to) as if you're anything like me the original might have been re-organised a couple of weeks later!
