Importing Inspiration Outline

Post by danielpoulin » Wed May 26, 2010 2:59 pm

Hello,

Cmaptools in now my my main mapping tool. I've choose it over Inspiration 9.

So, I've a lot of Inspiration files I'd like to convert to Cmaptools format.

In the file menu, I can import Inspiration outline. I've made several tests but I end up having the same massage: invalid file format, unable to import.

What's the trick?

Thanks for your time.

Bye!

hmmm... this was implemented many years ago. Can you send us as an attachment a sample file to use?

Thanks.

I think I've figure it out with many tries...

You have to export without prefixes... But, there is another thing: when importing the outline, every link displays a linking phrase like ???? in Cmaptools.

Is there a way to import an Inspiration outline with Cmaptools creating links without ???? ?

Thanks

Daniel

Well, the problem is that the outline does not contain linking phrases, right?

Hi all,

New to the forum. Apologies in advance, I am not sure how/where to post a new question. So, posting here. I would like to know how I can open a jpg file to CmapTools. This file was originally was converted to jpg image file from a cmap file. Now, I would like to convert it back to cmap.

Thanks. - V
