Plugins in 0.8.0

There are several plugins delivered with FreeMind 0.8.0 and 0.8.1, including a reminder plugin, a plugin for export to SVG and PDF and a help plugin. If you use the max version of FreeMind, you have the plugins delivered as part of the distribution, so you do not need to install them manually. The functions that plugins offer are accessible from various menu items.

Plugins delivered with FreeMind 0.8.0:

  • Plugin: Time Management
    • Enables adding reminders to nodes. A reminder contains a date and time and is stored with the node it is attached to. FreeMind regularly checks if the date and time is already reached and informs you using blinking icons.
    • Menu items:
      • Tools > Show Calendar
      • Tools > Show Time Scheduler List
    • See also Time Management HowTo.
  • Plugin: Export to SVG and PDF
    • Enables export to Scalable Vector Graphics (SVG) and export to Portable Document Format (PDF)
    • Menu items:
      • Export > As PDF
      • Export > As SVG
  • Plugin: Help
    • Menu items:
      • Help > Help – brings up a help system reminiscent of help usually delivered with Microsoft Windows applications.

Ensuring that plugins are enabled and loaded:

  • Only FreeMind "Max" version contains plugins.
  • There is a bug in FreeMind v.0.8.0 in that plugins are not loaded if you start FreeMind by clicking on a .mm file that is not in the same folder as FreeMind. The bug should not be there in FreeMind 0.8.1.
