Displaying 2 maps next to each other

Wolfgang Schultz Sep 18, 2017 09:06PM HKT


I am looking for the feature to display 2 maps next to each other on a Mac.

I have to compare 2 maps, one of me and one of the customer with changes. I hope it is possible to have both maps next to each other to compare them. But I do not find the feature.

Please help me.

Thanks and Best Regards,

There is no built-in feature. However, there is an easy work-around. Just install Xmind twice, either the same or different versions. The file format hasn't changed (at least) since Xmind 7.5 update 1. Make sure that you install the two instances with different names.

Okay, odd thing. Yesterday I was able to do exactly this. I pulled my sheet to the right side of the window and could decide whether it would go top/bottom split or left/right split.

Today that's not working. I swear it worked yesterday. I thought I tried it AFTER the update, too, so I have no idea what it stopped working.

I'd rather pull up a second instance of the program anyway.

The underlying Eclipse has supported both split views (same file displayed twice) and multiple editor views (different files displayed at the same time) for some time. While Xmind Inc. has removed all (?) menu items, context menus and keyboard shortcuts to invoke it, I suspect the functionality is still there, i.e. the code isn't removed. Anyway I just tested with some key commands in vain.

Eclipse has been criticised for been less than user-friendly, and I agree to a degree. Xmind Inc. seems to have decided to strip off dockable panes, split views etc. to make Xmind more user-friendly. That may well be a good solution for newbies and casual users, but not so for heavy-users.
