New MindManager 15 for Windows offers valuable ease-of-use enhancements

August 13th, 2016 | Posted in Reviews, Software

MindManager 15 for Windows offers some practical new features and enhancements that will help you to be more productive and well organized than ever before.

The most significant new features of MindManager 15 include a vastly expanded selection of map parts, project management improvements, a new set of hand-drawn icons and a reorganized and simplified template view. The developer’s objective for this new version was to make it easier for new users to get started with the program, while also responding to customer requests for enhancements to existing features.

Here’s what’s new in MindManager 15, and the significance of these new features and enhancements to business users of the program:

Expanded map parts

I’ve always been a fan of this feature of MindManager, because it makes it easy to build common types of mind maps using drag-and-drop functionality. My biggest complaint with it was that there weren’t enough map parts and they didn’t address enough key business uses of mind maps. In addition, the thumbnail images were so small that it was hard to see what each map part looked like.

Mindjet has remedied these past shortcomings in MindManager 15, which includes 50 new map parts. These “plus and play” map components are divided into categories, including brainstorming, project planning, business analysis and meeting planning. In addition, you can select any topic in one of your maps and save it and all of its child topics into a new map part. This could potentially save you many hours of work if you repeatedly create the same types of mind maps.

Improved templates view

In previous versions of MindManager, the templates view required a lot of scrolling. In version 15, Mindjet has regrouped them into six topic-focused folders – management, meetings and events, personal productivity, problem solving, project management and strategic planning. This gives you a concise, high-level view of the types of templates that are available. You can then open a folder to view all of the templates it contains.

In addition, it displays blank templates for creating radial, right, tree and org chart maps, and continues to give you access to Mindjet’s online MapsForThat gallery. Any templates you have created are stored in a new My Templates folder. This new compact layout makes MindManager’s templates view much easier to use.

Hand drawn icon set

In addition to the standard set of icons that ships with previous versions of MindManager, version 15 now includes a set of over 600 hand-drawn icons. They are available in four colors. Mindjet VP of Products Michael Deutch says he was inspired by a post on this blog about the Vector Doodlekit, a third-party collection of hand-drawn icons and symbols, to include a similar set of resources in MindManager 15. The goal is to enable users to create mind maps with a more organic, hand-drawn look.

Project management enhancements

In previous versions of MindManager, if you had a project that was going to start significantly earlier or later than you planned, you had to manually change the start and end dates of each task. In version 15, a new “move project” command simplifies this process. By changing the start date of the overall project, MindManager 15 automatically adjusts all of the task date ranges. You can also use a new command to eliminate slack time in the GANTT view of your project. This can help you to ensure that your project gets done at the earliest possible date.

New topic “quick add” buttons

As part of Mindjet’s goal to improve the usability of MindManager for new users, version 15 now includes small nodes, each containing a plus sign (+), that stick out of the top, bottom and side of each topic. Clicking on one creates a new linked topic in that direction. Deutch said that new users sometimes get stuck trying to figure out how to add new topics to their mind maps. These quick add buttons make it easy to see what to do next. In addition, they enable any users of MindManager 15 to quickly add topics without having to mouse back up to the program’s ribbon toolbar each time – nice!

These new buttons each require a small amount of extra vertical space, however, which can potentially cause printing and page fit problems for some users. If you don’t want them to be visible, you can turn them off in the program’s options. Very smart!

Auto-creation of slides

A new command in MindManager 15 enables users to have the program auto-create slides. If you need to quickly present a mind map to your colleagues, this can be a big time-saver. A new map theme included in this version contains font sizes and settings that are optimized for display on a screen, too.

Whither MindManager 15 for Mac?

Deutch said a Mac version is now under development; Mindjet hopes to release it by year-end. He said the company is driving toward a new development platform that will make it easier to develop one set of code and deploy it to all platforms (Windows, Mac, mobile and web). That sounds like an ambitious goal, but Deutch believes it’s achievable in the next year or two.

MindManager + SpigitEngage?

During Mindjet’s briefing for MindManager 15, I asked for an update on the company’s acquisition of Spigit, a developer of enterprise idea management solutions. Can we expect to see some connections between MindManager and SpigitEngage? Deutch said the Mindjet team has done some research to figure out where the two applications could potentially connect. Clearly there are steps in the innovation process where visual thinking could have a significant impact. The next step is to determine where such integration will offer the greatest benefit to Mindjet and Spigit customers.


MindManager 15 for Windows represents a well thought-out evolution of the program’s comprehensive feature set. The usability enhancements – such as the new templates view, quick-add buttons and the expanded map parts gallery – will be especially appreciated by new users. Experienced users of MindManager will appreciate some of its more powerful new features, like move project and remove slack time for projects.

For more information about and pricing for MindManager 15 for Windows, please visit Mindjet’s product page.

Watch this blog for a review of MindManager 15 in the next month or so, where I will take a deeper look at the new and enhanced features of this excellent program.

How to Edit PDF Files: Free Online & Offline Tools

August 1st, 2016 | Posted in Software

PDF, or the Portable Document Format is one of the most popular format for document sharing. Its popularity is mainly because PDF files are multi-platform (can be run on most devices without any change in formatting), smaller in size, can be opened on most devices with free software and are difficult to edit as they are “read only”.

Despite PDF files being “read only” by default, there are certain tools and software you can use to change the contents of a PDF file for free without resorting to paid software like Adobe Acrobat.

Free Tools To Edit PDF files

Edit PDF Files Online
If you are looking for basic PDF editing (changing bits of text to hide your personal information or simply filling a form), you can try PDFEscape to edit PDF files right in your browser. It allows you to modify text, images and add annotations with the help of custom shapes and arrows. One of PDF Escape’s great feature is its ability to password protect PDF files. It also allows you to hide text with its white out tool (this is different from deleting it). It even lets you edit password protected PDF files and add hyperlinks to web addresses. To use PDF Escape, all you need is a JavaScript enabled web browser.

2 step PDF Editing

This basically involves converting PDF files into another format and then editing the converted PDF file. After editing, you can use a PDF writer to reconvert the edited file back to PDF.

If your PDF file can be suitably edited as a Word document, you can use a PDF to Word converter for instant conversion. Edit the converted file and then, you can use any free PDF writer to recreate a PDF file. If you have Open Office, you can use its export as PDF feature to create a PDF file from almost any printable document.

Multivalent Browser: Multivalent browser offers minimal PDF editing in the form of allowing to add annotations. It also contains several command line tools which allow for merging and compressing PDF files.

Edit Meta data of PDF files
Meta Data is the information that is associated with a PDF file. If you wish to change this information, you can use the free PDFMetaEdit to edit information like title, author name, bookmarks and other creation data of a PDF document. PDFMetaEdit can also be used to remove and add passwords (encrypt) to PDF files.

Advanced PDF Editors (editing text, images etc.)

The freeware tools mentioned above will be useful for most users with basic PDF editing requirements. However, if you have advanced PDF editing needs, the above tools will not be that useful. There are some advanced PDF editing tools available that are as good as most paid products.

Open Office Draw

The open source alternative to Microsoft Office can also be used as an alternative to Adobe Acrobat. All you need is the PDF Import extension (older version here). Then you can use Open Office Draw to easily and quickly edit PDF files. With Open Office Draw’s inline editing features, you can edit any PDF document as easily as you can edit a Word document. It also supports adding and replacing images, changing font size and color, replacing default font-family, adding annotations, charts, shapes, tables all through an easy to use interface.

To load the PDF Import extension in Open Office, just open Extension Manager from the Tools Menu, click on Add and then select the location of the downloaded extension. For those of you who want a PDF Editor without any initial setup, LibreOffice, an Office suite descended from Open Office, has this extension included by default. If you don’t mind the download size, Open Office Draw is simply the best free PDF editor available.

Inkscape: Inkscape is a vector graphics editor that allows you import and export PDF files. You can use Inkscape to select text, image or any other object on a PDF file and then change its position or even delete it. It also lets you do free hand drawing on PDF files and add annotations. While Inkscape offers some really good features, its complex interface makes it difficult for users to use it. Moreover, it only allows you to edit only a single page at a time. You can, however, convert these to a single PDF file using a PDF combiner.

PDFTools: PDFTools is a PDF management application that supports encrypting, decrypting (remove password), joining and splitting PDF files. Its Stamp feature can be used to add text and images over a PDF file. You can stamp to the location of your choice using the X and Y co-ordinates. It includes a PDF creator which can be used to create a PDF file from any XML document. It also supports re-arranging pages in a PDF file.

GIMP: GIMP or the GNU Image Manipulation Program can also be used as a PDF editor. Just import any PDF file as an image or a layer, then edit it, and then use its export function to get a PDF file. The only downside is that like Inkscape, GIMP also allows you to edit only a single page at a time. You can, however, easily combine these to get a single PDF file using free software like the above mentioned PDFTools.

PDF-XChange Viewer: The free version of PDF-XChange viewer can be used to directly type text on PDF files. This makes this software a good PDF form filler. Its image stamp feature can be used to insert images directly on any PDF document.

PDFEdit: PDFEdit is a full fledged PDF editor for Unix-Like operating systems. Its downside is that it does not support editing protected or encrypted PDF files. PDFEdit has a beta version for Windows, but it didn’t work for me.

Convert PDF to Word and Word to PDF with Free Software

July 20th, 2016 | Posted in Software

PDF and Word (.doc and .docx) are two document formats most computer users encounter on a frequent basis. PDF files have advantages of being platform independent, hard to edit and smaller in size. Word documents on the other hand are easy to edit, format and read on devices that support them. While both of these formats have their advantages, many users have felt the need to convert one to the other to take advantage of the other’s features.

There are many paid software and tools that support this conversion, but most of them are too expensive. There are many free online conversion tools as well but either they result in low quality conversion with lots of missing resources or take too much time due to server limitations. Most of these online tools limit the size of files you can convert. Also, many people are not comfortable with uploading their personal files on a third party server.

In this situation, the only solution to obtain high quality conversion from one format to the other and that too quickly is using a program installed on your PC. There are many free software that support this but the problem with most of them is that they do not offer high quality conversion and result in lots of missing resources. However, there are certain free products that offer quick and high quality conversion from PDF to Word and vice versa. This article contains some such software.

In this article:
1. Convert PDF to Word
2. Convert Word to PDF

Convert PDF to Word

Open Office
The basic version of Open Office that you download from lacks PDF operability. To add PDF functionality to Open Office, you will need to install the PDF Import extension. If you have older versions of Open Office, you can use the older version of this extension. LibreOffice, an office suite descended from Open Office has this extension included by default.
While Open Office does not support direct conversion of PDF files to Word documents, you can use an indirect method to achieve this conversion. To do this, open any PDF document in Open Office Draw and copy all its elements with Ctrl+A followed by Ctrl+C. Now open Open Office Writer and press Ctrl+V and then save the file as a Word document. In this way, you can get a Word document of your PDF file with remarkable accuracy.

You can also directly edit the PDF file with Open Office Draw just as easily as a Word document.

UniPDF is a small free utility that lets you convert PDF files to Word documents with speed and accuracy. It also offers conversion of PDF files to RTF, JPEG, PNG, GIF, HTML and plain text. While it lacks a plethora of features, it is good at what it promises to do; convert PDF files.

Both of these programs run on Windows 8.1, Windows 8, Windows 7, Windows Vista and Windows XP. It is interesting to note that PDF to word conversion is possible only if the PDF file is not a scanned image and was created as a text document.

Online Tools
While the above mentioned offline tools will be enough for most conversion needs, it is always good to have a few options. These online tools provide accurate and fast conversion from PDF to Word.

ConvertFiles: Limits the file size to 250 MB. Offers high quality conversion with OCR support.
ConvertOnlineFree: Limits the file size to 30 MB. Is a good option but lacks OCR support.

Convert Word to PDF

Open Office can be effectively used for this purpose. Just open a Word Document in Open Office Writer and use its Export as PDF option to immediately get a PDF version. Similarly, you can use Open Office to convert XLS and PPT files to PDF as well.

Flip Video Editor for Mac

June 27th, 2015 | Posted in Software

These days I did some research about Flip video camcorder and found many users are confused when they want to edit their favourite videos recorded by Flip video camcorder (including Flip Ultra, Flip Ultra HD, Flip Video Mino, Flip Video Mino HD and the newly released member Flip SlideHD) for whatever reason the met.

Flip video editing, iMovie, FCP, Adobe Premiere Pro say NO

As for Mac users, iMovie, FCP or Adobe Premiere Pro are probably the most frequently used editing programs. However, when you import your Flip videos directly into any of them, then the most possible things is nothing happens. Why? File compatibility problem. Usually, Flip video camcorders shoot videos in MP4 or H.264 which can’t be accepted by any of them directly. Such importing failures are no rare, just have a look the following example.

“I normally use Adobe Premier Pro CS3 for video editing.

I would like to do some editing of video from a Flip camera. This footage doesn’t seem to import to Premiere. So is there a good editor that will support Flip video natively, without too much extra hassle?”

FlipShare sometimes quit

FlipShare is an editing software pro-loaded with every Flip video camcorder which promised to make organizing, creating and sharing Flip videos in a simple way. But it proved to be not as good and powerful as it should be for whatever reasons maybe, it just quit its job. The following conditions may happen someday if you want to edit your Flip videos with it, just go with me.

“I like to make videos with my friend and I got a Flip Ultra for Christmas but Flip doesn’t work with my editor and I can’t really do anything cool with FlipShare, so I am looking to buy a new editor.

What I want to mare sure is that FlipShare will work with it.”

Flip video editor for Mac comes to your rescue

Flip video editor for Mac is an elaborately designed application for Flip video camcorder (including Flip Ultra, Flip Ultra HD, Flip Video Mino, Flip Video Mino HD and Flip SlideHD) users that can edit the Flip videos directly without anything else required. It provides rich video editing functions for you, such as video cropping, video trimming, video files merging, effects adding, images capturing, video rotating, to put it exactly, it is a professional Flip video cropper, trimmer, merger, splitter. Besides, it can also adjust the output parameters for your Flip videos.

Mac Flip video editor is also an excellent video conversion tool that can convert your Flip videos to almost all popular files like AVI, WMV, MPG, MKV, MOV, FLV, 3GP, DV, SWF, RM so that you can put on various portable devices like iPod, iPad, iPhone, iRiver, BlackBerry, Gphone, Mobile Phone etc, import to video editing tools such as iMovie, FCP, Adobe Premiere Pro, upload to websites or play on other video players as well. Besides, as batch process mode is supported, you can import a bunch of files at the same time.

‘I’ve been managing my salon for years and I know all my clients like friends so what use would Salon Management Software be to me? I’m doing well and have expanded and now have another four stylists working for me and I’d like to take a bit more time off to spend with my family’.

Does that sound like you? Yes, of course you know what you are doing, you’ve been at it a long time and you can see from your salon you are doing well, but do you have control? Are you relying on your team to be as good as you? Are all their clients like friends? Do they share your ambition and can they grasp the bookkeeping side of things?

If that has raised a few questions, then read on. If you have Salon Management Software in place you have more control over your clientele and your staff and your admin. Salon Management Software would mean that you can keep client records with things like the products they use, their usual hair colour, if they prefer to come in on Tuesday mornings. If their usual stylist was off for any reason then someone else could still look after that customer with full knowledge of their needs. With Salon Management Software you can keep records of each stylist and what appointments they do day by day. You can generate reports that will show if one of your stylists is ‘dropping off’ and address the issue before it’s a problem and the salon loses clients. The other key element is stock control.

After all, you probably went into business because you’re a great stylist not a bookkeeper. So let the software do the work for you and with the proper training and support your team can use the parts of the software that you want them to be able to access. This gives you the overall control so that you can step back and take some time off when you want to without worrying that it will all go wrong without you.

Learn PowerPoint: Become a PowerPoint Guru – eBook Review

May 30th, 2015 | Posted in Software

This is a review of the eBook, Learn Powerpoint: Become a PowerPoint Guru, written by David Tracy. Tracy is a management consultant of 12 years, where he focused on corporate strategy and M&A. This ebook is a a compilation of all the PowerPoint frameworks, tricks, and lessons Tracy has acquired over years of experience.  The ebook covers beginner to advanced topics, including presentation structuring, storyboarding, and PowerPoint diagramming techniques.

I would recommend this book to anyone working in business. After all, PowerPoint is one of the most important communication tools in the corporate world. Its widespread adoption spans across roles, industries, and geographies. Whether you’re a college intern or a c-level executive, you will need to create effective presentations that engage your audience and effectively communicate your messages.

The ebook is an easy read, just shy of 60 pages, and packed tight with content. It is divided into 3 core sections. In the first section, Tracy covers the basics of PowerPoint, which includes setting up your button shortcuts, keyboard shortcuts, a compilation of PowerPoint formatting guidelines, and a concept he refers to as the Consulting Presentation Framework. He asserts this Framework is followed by all major consultancies, such as McKinsey, BCG, Booz Allen, Deloitte, and so forth. It includes very specific rules around font choices, grammar, and content structuring.

The second section is all about “storyboarding.” He discusses several methodologies used by consulting firms, such as the Barbara Minto’s Pyramid Principle of creating your overall story, MECE in strengthening your story, and PCPV in structuring your individual slides for your exact audience.

In the last section, titled “The Art of PowerPoint,” Tracy discusses the different ways of making your slides look professional and pretty. This is a fairly detailed discussion, where he introduces a multitude of charts and diagrams; and the specific situations to use each. Personally, I found this to be one of the most important chapters. In addition, he walks through a detailed example of creating a unique diagram from scratch. The specific example he uses is a toolbox. He starts off with finding a representative picture on Google Image Search. Then, he outlines the steps of recreating it using AutoShapes and PowerPoint effects.

In addition to the PowerPoint eBook, on his website (, you can also find other PowerPoint resources. You can browse his store of PowerPoint Diagrams, download sample chapters from the eBook, and download theBasic PowerPoint Toolkit for free.

The Best WMA Converter Ever!

May 6th, 2015 | Posted in Software

With so many new audio formats available, users are faced with difficulties when opening files. For this reason, they have to spend long time looking for an effective audio converter. There are lots of converters available on the web, but most of them support only one or two formats. This is rather routine and time-consuming. Fortunately, there is a new all-in-one converter that does the entire job the right way!

Factory Audio Converter is the most effective and user friendly file conversion utility around. It supports over 30 audio formats and converts audio files to WMA, MP3, MP4, MPC, WAV, FLAC, APE and AAC. With this unique tool, you can easily convert WMA to MP3. Besides, the tool features batch function, which allows you to convert many files at a time. You can set the converter to manage several hundreds of files, and it will not take much longer than converting one or two files!

Factory Audio Converter features an easy-to-follow interface. It is laid out in a way that makes each button and function immediately observable. Therefore, operation is easy as pie for even first-time users. You do not have to memorize anything. All you need to do is select your required folder, check the files you wish to convert and select the target format in the format panel. For instance, if you need to convert WAV to MP3, you should select a folder with WAV files, check one or more files and click MP3.

The program wizard will automatically set the bitrate, sample rate and channel options. If you are not an inexperienced user, please, leave the default settings. You will gain an advanced understanding after more experience using the converter.  If you are an experienced user, you will know the difference in settings and will be able to set the converter to your preferrence. If you have to convert part of an hour-long audio file, the wizard will help you make an extract. Simiply, Select Part, set the beginning and the end of the track, then click Start.

MP3 is audio is the most software-friendly, most compact and therefore the most popular audio format. Due to the small size, you can fit an extensive MP3 collection on a relatively small drive. Unfortunately, WMA seems to be falling by the way side due to high occurrence of errors. Not to mention, MP3 files have better sound characteristics. Converting WMA to MP3 is the only effective solution to this problem. This is where Factory Audio Converter comes in handy.

This unique converter has a few advanced characteristics. It features a built-in audio player and a CD ripper. The player permits you to estimate the quality of both source files and target files.
