Adding an email hyperlink

You can include a hyperlink on a topic or within topic notes that you can click to create a pre-addressed email message using your default mail client.

To add an email hyperlink:

  1. Select a topic in Map View or Outline View, or, within the topic notes, select some text or an image.

  2. Click the Link toolbar button on the Home or Insert tab, or choose Insert > Hyperlink.

    Tip: Click the Task Panes toolbar button, click the Inspector tab, and then click the Hyperlink and Attachments tab. If a hyperlink already exists for the selection it will show here. To create a hyperlink or modify the link shown, click Manage.

  3. Choose Email Address in the Link To pop-up menu.

  4. Type the address and subject for the new message in the Address and Subject fields.
    You can assign a title to a link in the Link Title box. When you point to the link, the link title is displayed along with the email address.

Tip:You can add multiple links to a topic. A topic with multiple links displays this icon: .

Hints:

  • You can hide or show all hyperlink icons on the map by choosing View > Show & Hide.

  • You can also add an inline hyperlink by typing a mailto: url into the topic text. MindManager automatically converts the text into a hyperlink. To add multiple hyperlinks, separate the url's by spaces. (Choose View > Detect Topic Hyperlinks to disable this feature.) These inline hyperlinks do not show in the Inspector.

To remove or edit a hyperlink:

  1. Control-click the topic's hyperlink icon, or Control-click the linked text or image in the notes.

  2. Choose Edit Link.

    Tip:Click the Task Panes toolbar button, click the Inspector tab, and then click the Hyperlink and Attachments tab. If a hyperlink already exists for the selection it will show here. To create a hyperlink or modify the link shown, click Manage.

  3. Make changes to the hyperlink in the dialog or click the Remove Hyperlink button.
    Tip:For a link within the topic text (inline links), you must modify the topic text to modify the link (you may need to choose View > Detect Topic Hyperlinks in order to deactivate the link and edit the text, then re-check this option to activate the link again).
