CS Odessa has announced a new version 5.3 of its ConceptDraw MINDMAP software. It adds the capability of generating visual eBooks from mind maps, a unique capability. What, exactly, is a visual eBook? CS Odessa explains it like this in its official announcement:
"(A) Visual eBook is an electronic book where all the information is presented as a mind map rather than text paragraphs. Each page of a Visual eBook is a mind map that is grouped by chapters and paragraphs like in a text book. (A) Visual eBook is a great solution for preparing learning materials within academic and business environments."
In short, ConceptDraw MINDMAP can now generate multi-page PDF documents from mind maps, with all of the hyperlinks preserved – a capability that the developer views as essential for coaches and educators. Click here for more information about this capability.
Other new features in ConceptDraw MINDMAP 5.3 for both Windows and Macintosh include these:
- The ability to send a map via email from inside the program,
- The option to turn off the background image during printing, and
- Redesigned map style presets, which are now more professional in appearance.
The update to ConceptDraw MIDNMAP 5.3 is free for all registered users of ConceptDraw MINDMAP 5.x. A full licensed version of ConceptDraw MINDMAP 5 is available at the price of US$199 for the Professional edition and US$119 for the Personal edition.
