In an earlier posting I described the new "Slides" feature of MindManager 9 - see "Working with Slides in MM9". The version I was using at the time allowed for the creation of the slide views and for the slides to be printed.
A new version of the pre-release software has additional function that allows the information in the "Slides" view to be exported to PowerPoint.
In this simple example, I have first created three slides from a map I made by importing this week's tasks from Outlook 2010.
To save the slides to Powerpoint, click on the drop down menu in the slides pane - to the left of the main screen. Select "Export Slides to Microsoft PowerPoint".
This opens a "Save file" dialogue - enter the file name and select the folder location for the PowerPoint file.
A new dialogue box pops up offering you several choices. You can export your slides as a text outline - each slide will be converted to a bulleted list on a PowerPoint slide. Or you can export the slide contents as PowerPoint objects - the map structure of the slide will be recreated as PowerPoint drawing objects.
The bulleted list option.
The PowerPoint objects option.
Obviously one then has the option to edit the objects and reformat them to suit.
Other options let you select your preferred PowerPoint template and whether you want to export any topic notes as PowerPoint speaker notes.
