Hi

I'm working on Cmaptools version 6.03

Is there complet information somewhere about the 2 import function of .txt files :
Import _ proposal in text format...
_plan of the Cmap...


I'm looking for a way to create automatiquely an organigramme base on a text file (created by an Excel file which contain the hierarchy of each "concept", and the text needed in each "concept")

Best regards

The "proposition as text format" is simple. One proposition per line in a text file, with tabs between concept and linking-phrase. That is:'

concept1 <tab> linking-phrase1 <tab> concept 2

To get an understanding of the outline import, I always recommend that you export one of your Cmaps as outline. That will give you a good idea of how it works.
