Use your own dictionary for spell checking in XMind

Posted on July 7th, 2010 in Featured, XMind Basic | 28 Comments »

Nowadays, we are getting used to spell checking whenever we write something. In XMind, you may meet this kind issue, when editing a topic, you expect that spell checking can help you to perfect your spelling.

Now in XMind, the default spell checking is in English. But our users come from all over the world, they speak all kinds of languages. This default spell checking couldn’t meet the need of users who come from non-English speaking countries.

If you come from non-English speaking countries, you may probably want to use your own dictionary for spell checking.

Here one of our users shared a useful website for you to find your own dictionary:

Download the very dictionary,  change the extension to .dict , then add your own dictionary to XMind. (Edit > Preferences > Mind Map > Spelling)

After doing this, in XMind, you can enjoy spell checking for French, German, Spanish and etc. Very easy and useful, right? 🙂 Whenever you need this, do not hesitate to give it a try.

With an XMind ID, set mind free

Posted on October 21st, 2009 in Featured, XMind Basic | 1 Comment »

With an XMind account, you can present your map anywhere.

Firstly, with the account, you can upload your maps online and share with people all over the world. Also, you can choose the map you like and add to favorite, then you will see the map in your account, staying in “My favorites”. If you are an XMind Pro user, your online maps can even be shared privately as you wish. In fact, the inspiration to write this blog is from the questions raised by one XMind Pro user.  He who is a CEO from a UK company, a mind mapping fan, began to use XMind by recommendation from his friend. Later, he consulted with us about how to cooperate with his colleagues by using XMind. After knowing about the Private Sharing, and even the other one whom he wants to share with doesn’t have to pay to be a Pro user, just needs to sign up an XMind account, he was very glad about it and felt it’s very convenient.

Secondly, the account is very important to use XMind Pro. You should use a code to activate your account, and then use the activated account to sign in when launching XMind Pro. With this account, the greatest benefit is that you can use XMind Pro anywhere! No geographic and time limitations, XMind is somehow close at hand.

How convenient it is! It only takes a little bit time to sign up a free account. Why don’t you have a try to sign up an XMind ID, then enter into this wonderful mind mapping world.
