From a shared page is it possible to link to a specific topic in another published map?

I have several maps which reference other published maps and in many places it would be more of interest if I could link these big maps (some more than 500 topics in a mao and some is even flowcharts where callouts contain specific information with text included,¨

Would be nice if a future version would be able to link to the topic which contain that callout os the user would understand where in a huge map to look for information


I think it would be quite valuable if someone is writing a navigatable textbook on metabolic oathways

I probably missed something about your question, because otherwise we can already do this.

You can link to a specific topic that is in another map. Right-click on the destination topic that contains the callout and "copy as link". Go to the other map, click the topic where you want the link, right-click and "Paste Link". Voilà.

You can also link directly to the callout.

I guess that the problem is specific to linking from the shared map?

Hello Alf,


Published Maps allow you to copy specific links to topics to the clipboard.

Try this -


  1. Publish 'Map B'
  2. View the Published Map in the browser
  3. Right click a topic (or callout) that you will like to link to and choose 'Link to this topic'

  4. Open 'Map A' in MindManager
  5. Paste the copied link from step 3 to the desired Topic(s).

  6. Publish 'Map A'.
    Now your links will point to other published maps and go directly to those topics.

Thanx for the solution !!

Now I'm able to show links btw maps that visualize why keeping a balance btw food consumption in MJ (megajoules) and physical energy expenditure in MJ is so important in these days to make you able to fight infections :-D

You can also create two-way links by following the above process. Establish a link from Map A to a specific topic in Map B using the method above, then open the published version of Map A and right click on the topic you want to link to and create a link.

Then go to the source map for Map B, select a topic to link from and add the link. Save the map and then click on Publish and select Publish Update (Use Existing URL). Once the edited version of Map B is published you should have links both ways between the published versions of Map A and Map B.
