Common Questions

What is Mindomo Desktop?

Mindomo Desktop is a stand-alone mind mapping software that lets you create mind maps, concept maps and task mind maps locally and also sync them online for easy sharing.

How can I share the maps I build in the Desktop?

Sharing maps with online users

Use the 'Sync & Save Online' feature to save your local mind maps and all their attached files in the cloud. This way you can publish your maps or keep them private and share them only with your collaborators. Once a map is synced with the cloud, use the 'Sync & Save Online' to see offline all recent changes that were made online.

During the syncing process, local files will be uploaded to the Mindomo server, while the files attached online will be downloaded and saved locally.

Of course, you can choose to sync maps without uploading files to the server or downloading them locally.

Sharing maps with other Mindomo Desktop users

The 'Pack Map' functionality (1) will compress your mind map and all its attached files into a single .pmom file (2) saved locally (3).

Share the *.pmom file with your collaborators so that they can open your map along with all its attached files from their own computers (4).

When they will open the 'Pack Map' (.pmom) file, they will decompress the contained mind map and all its attached files, saving them to a new empty folder of their choice (6).
