There is an easy workaround, namely control-clicking on the icon and selecting Open. Or you can disable the check entirely (although this is not recommended):

Experience shows that 64 MB is not sufficient, while 128 MB is already enough, provided that you do not run another Java application. Correct me if I'm wrong. I am using FreeMind on Windows 95 + 128 MB without any problems.

On PDA, you can use [[FreeMindPDA]]. It uses cross-platform [http://www.superwaba.com SuperWaba] Open Source SDK. However, it does not use mind map view, but rather plain tree view; it is not a proper FreeMind version in that sense. See also [[Stuff#PDA|FreeMind and PDA]].

== Can one make a script to run filters according to the attributes of selected nodes ==
I'm looking for a way to run filters more intuitively by making the filter by way of clicking on the attributes and icons in nodes on the mind map. Is this possible. Or i guess more simply to make a script that will run a selected filter (However this would be time consuming to do that for many nodes) Any suggestions?
