How close does this, or what things are similar to a mind-mapping software where you can search via a ‘launcher’ and the app intelligently zooms in to the relevant spot on the map?

* the above is the single best way to structure information (there may be better ways but i dont know it right now, or likely within this year, or likely ever within my lifetime)

---

other things that are helpful to finding this software/app/thing would be:

* link to a site (or similar) of all softwares/apps that have 1) high ratings a) from many users, and 2) were updated within the last 1-6 months. the site would have filters that are detailed, useful/helpful

* .....

* ??

* any other possible solutions towards this goal: the best way of structuring human-usable information -- is good

There are two search functions in Xmind: Find and Search. "Find" is gratis and "Search" requires a paid license. Needless to say "Find" is more limited.

If you refer by "a launcher" to a file manager (e.g. Explorer, Finder), the question becomes which file managers understand Xmind files. Namely, the process goes so that a crawl or data mining service crawls the files and builds an index which you normally search against using Windows Search or Spotlight (or something on Linux). Out of the box neither Windows Search nor Spotlight index the contents of Xmind maps. But Xmind files are XML and there are third party file managers that can be adjusted to crawl XML files with xmind extension.

Even if you get a file manager to open a map based on your search, the file manager opens the first sheet of the map with the central topic in focus. This happens because there is AFAIK no way to pass any parameters from outside to Xmind to select a certain topic. You might want to search this forum for feature requests for that.
